WASH et les maladies tropicales négligées (PDF)
Publié par The International Trachoma Initiative, Children Without Worms, WaterAid WASH Advocates, Center for Global Safe Water, Emory University, et CARE USA.

Le secteur WASH utilise souvent une baisse de l'incidence de la diarrhée comme principal indicateur d'amélioration de la santé.
