Need to bridge gaps in access to drinking water and sanitation

Listen /

The lack of provision in access to drinking water and sanitation in certain parts of the world need to be reduced further, according to a new report by two United Nations agencies.

The World Health Organization and the UN's Children's Fund report, entitled Progress on drinking water and sanitation: 2014 update, was released on Thursday.

The report shows that despite improved access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities globally, sharp inequalities persist.
