PBHL 317 The World's Water 3.0 Credits

Water is essential for life. Worldwide, 25% of people lack safely managed drinking water services and nearly 50% lack safely managed sanitation services. Safe and sufficient water, sanitation and hygiene services (WASH) are key for health and human rights. WASH services are a critical component of responses to infectious disease epidemics and ensuring infection prevention in healthcare facilities. Contaminated drinking water, inadequate water supply, or poor sanitation and hygiene all contribute to disease burden and decreased quality of life, particularly among the most vulnerable populations. This course will discuss a wide variety of topics related to WASH around the globe and the U.S. and will explore how WASH problems are compounded by emerging infectious diseases, climate change and rapid urbanization.
