WHO/UNICEF JMP Progress on Drinking Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools, 2020


This report presents updated national, regional and global estimates for WASH in schools up to the year 2019, with a special focus on the implications for ensuring
the safety of students and school staff during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The JMP uses service ladders to benchmark and compare progress across countries on WASH in schools, which are designed to track progress towards a basic level of service. This report also highlights additional indicators that have been used for national monitoring of WASH in schools and those most relevant for monitoring efforts to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19.
