Water and Health Conference USA

Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation fund scholarships for excellent WaSH researchers and graduate level for international students to study abroad

Applications are invited for the Water and Health Conference USA in the Week of October 23-27, 2023. Applicants can submit abstract and side event proposals on Water and Health at The Water Institute, Gillings School of Global Public Health, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States of America.

Access to clean water is a fundamental human right and a critical determinant of health. However, the world faces significant water challenges that threaten to undermine progress toward achieving global health goals. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 2.2 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water, while 4.2 billion people lack access to safely managed sanitation services. These challenges have far-reaching health implications, leading to a higher risk of infectious diseases, malnutrition, and other health problems.
