About WSSCC

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is at the heart of the global movement to improve sanitation and hygiene, so that all people can enjoy healthy and productive lives. Established in 1990, WSSCC is the only United Nations body devoted solely to the sanitation needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized people. WSSCC also operates the Global Sanitation Fund, which has committed $108 million since 2008 to transform lives in developing countries.
