WASH in Healthcare Facilities: Varanasi, Agra, Lucknow and Banda

This WASH in healthcare facilities assessment was carried out with the aim to understand the status of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services and related behaviours in healthcare settings. A total of 63 health
facilities across four districts of Uttar Pradesh (UP) were included, with table 1 presenting the overview of the number and types of health facilities assessed in the study. In UP, the maternal mortality ratio, and infant and
neonatal mortality rates are worse than the national estimates, highlighting a critical area of intervention.
