CDC Celebrates World Water Day

World Water Day, held on March 22, celebrates water, highlights its importance, and raises awareness of the 2 billion people living without access to safe water. Every year since 1993, CDC and organizations around the globe dedicate the day to drawing attention to the global water crisis. Water flows through every aspect of life and saves lives by minimizing poverty, reducing death from preventable diseases, and driving economic growth. The mission of CDC’s Global water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) team is to reduce the impact of WASH-related disease and to strengthen public health systems through WASH-specific workforce development, applied research, and technical assistance activities.
