Key Messages

  • All countries included in the country tracker are working on one or more of the eight practical steps.
  • For some countries, WASH in health care facilities is a relatively new area of work but the Resolution is proving to be a catalyst for action.
  • Most progress has been seen in establishing baselines and developing standards, whereas integration of WASH indicators remains the biggest gap.
  • Country efforts are focused on policy-level initiatives and still lack sufficient funding and investment to improve infrastructure and address large gaps in service.
  • Progress is happening even in fragile and conflict settings.

Tracking Progress

The country tracker (below) provides the basis for the biennial update to the World Health Assembly on progress against the Resolution. All countries were invited to submit progress on five of the eight practical steps. These steps inform the country progress tracker.

The tracker presents a snapshot of progress from 63 countries (as of May 2022). This includes countries from every WHO and UNICEF region but some areas (e.g. Small Island States) are underrepresented. Future updates will seek to address these gaps.

To submit a country progress update to be included in the tracker, please use this form (Microsoft Forms).
