Access to Basic Services
Achieving universal access to basic services - primary health care, education, nutrition and drinking water, sanitation and hygiene - is a long-standing goal of the international community. These essential services are the building blocks of human development. By enabling the world’s poorest to lead healthier and more productive lives, such services are the key to reducing the worst manifestations of poverty and to breaking its vicious cycle. Yet the challenges remain great. We work to help bridge the gaps that still hamper the fulfilment of these needs.
