WaterAid joined the Women Deliver conference because women’s voices are critical to realising safe, private, accessible and functional toilets and water sources for everyone. Throughout the conference and associated events, we showed how water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are critical to tackling gender inequality and ensuring the power and autonomy of women and girls everywhere.

The 2019 conference of Women Deliver conference, the major international organisation focusing on women’s and girls’ rights, health and wellbeing, was held from 3–6 June in Vancouver, Canada. Approximately 7,000 delegates, media and world leaders attended, and WaterAid joined them to highlight how WASH are fundamental to women’s and girls’ health and wellbeing, education and participation in decision making.
