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.
WSSCC is proud to be a Global Citizen. In collaboration with our partners and members in 150 countries, WSSCC advocates for the billions of people worldwide who lack access to good sanitation, and shares solutions that empower communities.We believe in the power of Global Citizens to end global poverty.
