WHO and UNICEF, working with the Global Task Team for monitoring WASH in health care facilities (HCF), have developed a set of core questions and indicators for WASH in HCF, in support of monitoring WASH in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The indicators include definitions for basic water, sanitation, hand hygiene, health care waste management, and environmental cleaning services. WHO and UNICEF are in the process of collecting national data for these indicators, which will form the basis for a global baseline report on WASH in HCF planned for the end of 2018.
