The impact of water scarcity on health
Contaminated water is a breeding ground for diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio, amongst others.
Water is essential for life, but its scarcity is the cause of much of the world’s death and disease.
This water crisis has resulted in a global health crisis, causing a strain on the world's medical facilities and causing a drain on the economy.
Much of this can be prevented through the creation of and access to clean and safely managed drinking water sources.
