There has been significant progress in access to safe water and to a lesser extent adequate sanitation worldwide, but major scientific and social challenges remain. On 17 February 2021, the Aga Khan University (AKU) Institute for Global Health and Development hosted a webinar involving a presentation and discussion on water and health in the context of climate change, issues of place, conflict and culture in water-related disease, and the interplay of water, health, gender and wellbeing in the built environment.
The Institute for Global Health and Development draws on a wide range of academic leaders and entities interested in engagement and collaboration around contemporary areas of interest. A core objective of the Institute is to promote cross-disciplinary research and programme development.
Today, AKDN is releasing the webinar on its channels to help bring attention to World Water Day.
