BP annual review

WASH Annual Review: 2021

In 2021 we reached 3 million people with clean water, 2.3 million people with improved sanitation, and 3.5 million people with handwashing facilities. Of all water points installed in 2021, 97% were taps which provide improved accessibility and quality over handpumps. With increased momentum around improved hygiene in response to COVID-19, we reached nearly double our target for handwashing facilities in schools and in healthcare facilities. We also reached 1,818 schools and 550 healthcare facilities with clean water. In line with our commitment to deepen our focus on the most vulnerable, more than 84% of participants live in fragile or extremely fragile contexts.
