    Abstract When the targets of SDG 6 are met in 2030, and the amount of untreated wastewater is reduced by half, millions of people in low-income countries that use wastewater for food production will remain exposed to long-term health risks in their daily lives. A shift in thinking, in policies and investment – away from reactive public health measures to effective treatment of wastewater – is a key to improving the livelihoods of these communities.
