The main objective of WASH programmes in humanitarian response is to reduce public health risks by creating barriers along those pathways.
People affected by crises are more susceptible to illness and death from disease, particularly diarrhoeal and infectious diseases. Such diseases are strongly related to inadequate sanitation and water supplies and poor hygiene. WASH programmes aim to reduce public health risks.
