Critical Debate on the Future of Healthcare

contribute your words

Everything impacts healthcare. Something as simple as access to clean drinking water can drastically affect a country's growth and the health of its population.

For every $1 invested in safe water and sanitation, a yield of $5 to $28 USD is returned in increased economic activity and reduced health care costs.

Every day over 6000 people, most of them children, die from lack of access to safe water and related diseases contracted from contaminated water

Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million).

22% of health facilities in Least Developed Countries have no safe water. Diarrheal disease, mainly contratced from unsafe water kills one child every 60 seconds.
