This updated two page flier, jointly produced by WHO, UNICEF and WaterAid, details the latest burden from poor WASH and IPC in health care, the role WASH and IPC serve in preventing AMR and the benefits of joint action and investments. It also provides examples of effective, collaborative action at the global, national and facility level. It allows anyone working in these fields to speak confidently about the current core issues, as well as solutions and will ultimately drive quality of care given how critical WASH and IPC measures are for AMR reduction and overall patient safety.
