Progress on drinking water, sanitation and hygiene: 2017 update and SDG baselines

WHO and UNICEF established the Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene in 1990, and published regular global updates throughout the Millennium Development Goal period. This report is the first update of the SDG period. It is by far the most comprehensive global assessment of drinking water, sanitation and hygiene to date and includes a wealth of new information on the types of facilities people use and the level of service they receive.
