Water and Health (2011)

Joint G8+ science academies’ statement



The Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7C states: “Halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation”. The Academies of Science of the G8+ countries stress that accessibility, quality and protection of water resources are fundamental to human health in rural and urban areas worldwide. The objectives of MDG7 are imperative in helping to achieve the MDGs on poverty, universal education, food and energy security, gender equality, child and maternal health, most critically, MDG4, reducing child mortality.
