This book compiles the state of knowledge of this rapidly evolving field, and presents an integrated approach that includes technology, management and planning.

This document presents recommended core questions to support harmonised monitoring of WASH in health care facilities as part of the SDGs. The core indicators and questions in this guide were developed by the Global Task Team for Monitoring WASH in HCF, convened by the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation
and Hygiene (JMP), and working under the auspices of the Global Action Plan on WASH in HCF. They are derived from current global normative documents, national standards and regulations, questions that have been used in facility assessment surveys and censuses, and the normative criteria of the human rights to water and sanitation: accessibility, availability, quality and acceptability.
