Celebrating World Water Day with a good WASH
This coming Saturday marks the 22nd year that the United Nations General Assembly has recognized March 22nd as World Water Day. In observation of this special day, we would like to take a look back at a few of the articles PLOS Medicine, PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, and PLOS Pathogens have published on the importance of clean water to human health.
From PLOS Medicine:
PLOS Medicine and Water Sanitation and Hygiene: A Committed Relationship
Hygiene, Sanitation, and Water: Forgotten Foundations of Health
From PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases:
