Water Sanitation and Hygiene are key indicators of development of any nation. Prevention of contamination of water, treatment distribution and handling of drinking water, new innovations in water conservation as part of environmental change is the focus of the development professionals.

DevInsights professionals bring in significant experience and learning in the area of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. One of the founder members has authored a book titled, “Is it really clean? – Creating a WASH Index”, was initially rooted in the idea that available data on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) should be simplified for easier interpretation and comparison across study units. It is the fundamental right of the human being to have access to clean Water and Sanitation as well as proper hygiene education, which in turn can reduce morbidity and death. This also impacts poverty and socioeconomic development. Poor sanitation contributes to diarrhea deaths especially among children. And chronic diarrhea can have a negative effect on physical and cognitive development in children. Adding to the problem, lack of WASH facilities prevent students from attending school, makes women vulnerable and diminish productivity.
