DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-19] 
Nowadays, people still do not have adequate access to public health and WASH in terms of quantity and quality. Such issues are aggravated in humanitarian crisis, affecting populations as refugees and other displaced citizens as a result of conflicts, poverty or lack of opportunities – in rural areas and others vulnerable due to natural disasters. Such scenario may increase waterborne diseases outbreaks in these populations, demonstrating recurrent social and environmental inequities everywhere. This session aims, while discussing strategies for waterborne diseases outbreaks prevention, indicate and develop adequate and sustainable infrastructure, financing, integrated management, policy making and enforcement, considering cultural particularities.
