Safe Food and Water Safety Campaign

Water is life, yet it is estimated that 1.5 billion people in the world do not have access to “clean” drinking water and 500 million people are carriers of water-transmitted diseases. Three billion people lack sanitation facilities and every year more than 5 million people die from illnesses linked to unsafe drinking water and improper fecal waste disposal.

Food is also a primary requirement for all living organisms. Yet, it too is a major source of infections and diarrhea in many parts of the world where health standards and hygiene controls are poor or nonexistent in the markets, shops, and restaurants. Food handlers may carry infectious diseases, may not practice good hygiene when preparing meals or after using the toilet or may not even have access to toilets, running water, and soap.
