Water in Developing Countries Described at Hearing

From a Pulitzer Center article: “Experts and advocates from humanitarian organizations stressed the need to provide adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities and instruction for school children in the developing world at a congressional briefing yesterday.

Two out of three schools in the developing world lack decent toilets, according to UNICEF. The World Health Organization estimates that 272 million school days are lost each year due to diarrhea and some 400 million school-aged children worldwide have worms.”

Dennis Warner, CRS senior technical adviser for water and sanitation Warner, is quoted in this Pulitzer Center article on water and sanitation in developing countries.
