This document describes the positive effects of safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions across a variety of development priorities. This partial list of research findings demonstrates that incorporating WASH into public health, HIV/AIDS, food security / nutrition, education and other programming can make progress toward all of these efforts more successful initially─and more sustainable over the long run. The sections below detail the consequences of unsafe WASH across sectors, as well as the benefits gained from integration.
