Liberia, International Community Must Prioritize WASH To Achieve SDGs

Foreign Policy: Want to Fight Ebola? Help Liberia Invest in Toilets.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia

“…Measuring progress toward clean water, sanitation, and hygiene in homes, schools, and hospitals will be an important component of achieving the new Global Goals, both in Liberia and around the world. … The responsibility of implementing these Global Goals, making sure foreign aid commitments are met, and ensuring that both developed and developing countries prioritize water, sanitation, and hygiene falls on all governments. … With sufficient political will and financing, we can build on [the momentum of the U.N. General Assembly] and ensure that everyone … has the right to good health, water, sanitation, and dignity” (9/29).
