The WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program was established in 1990 and has monitored progress on global safe drinking water and sanitation targets since the Millennium Development Goals were launched in 2000. As the MDG era comes to a close, this report shows how far we have come and how far we still have to go, presenting updated global statistics and disparities by region and wealth. The report also gives an overview of the JMP's work creating, implementing, and expanding WASH monitoring systems over the past 25 years.
