WSPortal: Health through Water

About WSPortal

The Partnership to Health through Water is a global alliance of programmes and initiatives dedicated to reducing the incidence of water-related disease worldwide. The Partnership has a key area of work focused on advocating the adoption and implementation of Water Safety Plans (WSPs), which are described in the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality and the IWA Bonn Charter for Safe Drinking Water.

As part of the Partnership, WSPortal aims to contribute to improving and maintaining the safety of piped drinking water supplies through the effective implementation of WSPs. This is achieved through collecting and disseminating case studies, references and tools, which provide practical guidance and evidence-based material of relevance that can be applied appropriately for a range of circumstances.
