Right to Water by World Health Organization

The objective of this brochure is to raise awareness to the right to water as an important health and human rights concern.

Water is the essence of life and human dignity. The right to water entitles everyone to sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water and women and men must enjoy it without discrimination. For poor people the lack of safe water constitutes an acute deprivation and cause of ill health.

The brochure outlines the scope and content of the human right to water and its relationship to other civil, cultural, economic, political, and social rights. In particular, water is closely linked and associated with the rights to food and nutrition to work and to a healthy environment.
