Malteser International has implemented WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) projects in the following countries:
Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
Water is life, sanitation is dignity. The most serious health problems in disaster situations are caused by poor hygiene due to insufficient water and by the consumption of contaminated water.
Recognising the strong link between health, water, sanitation and hygiene, demonstrated by numerous waterborne diseases, Malteser International’s specific work within this sector covers water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion.

Policy, research & conferences
Malteser International at the World Water Week 2012 in Stockholm - "No food and nutrition security without WASH": This year’s World Water Week in Stockholm examines the widely neglected and underestimated adverse nutritional impact of lack of safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). In the seminar “No food and nutrition security without WASH” organized by the German WASH Network and the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) of the World Bank, Malteser International portrays its CLTS (community-led total sanitation) projects in order to show how scaling up sanitation coverage can have a positive impact on the nutritional status of a population. >>more
