Nature and Context

A person without access to improved drinking water is forced to rely on sources such as surface water, or other unprotected water sources. In the immediate environment, exposed fecal matter will be transferred back into people’s food and water resources, helping to spread serious diseases such as cholera, typhoid, infectious hepatitis, polio, etc. The lack of effective waste disposal or sewerage systems can contaminate ecosystems and contribute to disease pandemics.
