Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Annual Report 2009

This report, released by WHO / Unicef, shows how the sanitation target set by the UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) will be missed by 13%, while the water target will be exceeded by 3%.

Figures indicate that 2.6 billion people still live without sanitation facilities and at the current rate of sanitation improvement, about 2.7 billion will be without sanitation in 2015.

In sub-Saharan Africa alone, about 800 million people are off track to meet the MDG in water and sanitation, concluding that a global alliance of developing countries and support agencies is the best way to bring countries on target.
