Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) related diseases contribute to high mortality and morbidity rates in emergency and post-emergency situations. Even in the absence of an emergency, diarrhoea kills over 30,000 children per week worldwide. During protracted war and conflict in particular diarrheal diseases can often kill more people than the conflict itself.According to UNICEF, every ninety seconds, a child dies due to water borne diseases. At the same time, one in every ten people cannot access safe water while three in every ten people in the world lack access to a toilet many emergency relief workers are able to assess and prioritize WASH needs for a population in distress.
