Water Sanitation and Health
Clean water to use and drink is often taken for granted in countries that already have it. However, adequate water sanitation systems are not universal with many countries in Africa lack this basic human necessity on a basic and affordable level. In Africa, over two million children under 5 years old die annually from causes including water. High percentages of the population in countries like Somalia, Ethiopia, and Madagascar do not have access to clean water. As the WHO, it is your job to bring closure to this humanitarian crisis pervading the world today. Even as the number of people who do not have access to water continues to decrease, a substantial number of people still do not have clean drinking water.
