Improving Nutrition Outcomes with Better Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene: Practical Solutions for Policies and Programs


Improving nutrition outcomes requires a coordinated, multi-sectoral approach that includes full engagement of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) stakeholders. This publication, jointly prepared by the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), summarizes current evidence on the benefits of WASH for improving nutrition outcomes and describes how WASH interventions can be integrated into nutrition programmes. It provides practical suggestions, targeted at nutrition programme managers and implementers, on the types of WASH interventions that should be included in nutrition programs and how to include them.
