Water is essential not only to health, but also to poverty reduction, food security, human rights and education. Despite the global target for clean water and sanitation through Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, 2 billion people still lack access to safely managed drinking water at home.
The Corus International family of organizations is committed to addressing water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH) crises around the world. While prioritizing social behavior change, our WASH programming employs a public health approach to WASH in emergencies, as well as sustainable water resource management for long-term development.
Guided by IMA World Health’s long-standing expertise, the Corus family continues to integrate WASH interventions into livelihoods projects as well as into broader primary health care delivery and health systems strengthening initiatives. By engaging with government, health and community leaders, we seek to accelerate change to bring equitable WASH access to all.
