    Abstract Improving access to safe water and adequate sanitation has been part of the global development agenda for decades. The obvious social inequities around the world, including access to safe water and sanitation, were addressed globally in 2000 through the creation and recognition of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).1 The MDGs were established to help target disparities and create a shared vision of the world for 2015, but progress has not always kept up with intention, and many of the issues addressed by the MDG targets are dealt with separately (in ‘silos’) rather than within a holistic framework. Water and sanitation are worthy targets in and of themselves but are part of the solution for achieving other targets, especially reducing maternal, infant and child morbidity and mortality.
