This study supports SDGs 3 and 6 by reporting findings from the first WHO global survey assessing infection prevention and control programme implementation at the facility level, and highlighting key gaps: for example, only 68% (302 of 446) of low-income countries had continuously available water services.
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 6 by assessing the level of hand hygiene implementation and its drivers in health-care facilities through a global WHO survey; 25% of health-care facilities in low-income and middle-income countries were found to lack basic hygiene services, including access to clean water.

Background: An alarming number of public health-care facilities in low-income and middle-income countries lack basic water, sanitation, hygiene (WASH), and waste management services.

This chapter aligns with Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation and Goal 3: Good health and well-being by arguing that SW resources, aquatic ecosystems, and unsuccessfully treated wastewater on water courses must be effectively treated to prevent hostile health risks that have long-term as well as short-term effects on human health.
This chapter aligns with Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation, Goal 3: Good health and well-being, and Goal 14: Life below water by summarizing different types of wastewater, its effects on freshwater ecosystem, and remedies to reduce the effect of these effluents on freshwater ecosystem and indirectly on humans.
