WASH in Healthcare Facilities: Vizianagaram and Nizamabad

This water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in healthcare facilities assessment was carried out to understand the status of WASH services and related behaviours in healthcare settings. A total of 140 health facilities were covered in Andhra Pradesh (AP) and Telangana. Andhra Pradesh is doing better than the country as a whole in terms of their maternal mortality ratio. Yet infant and neonatal mortality rates are comparable to the national rates, highlighting this as a critical area of intervention.
