COVID-19 hit the world in 2020, the year of the 10th anniversary of the recognition of the human rights to water and sanitation by two UNGA and HRC 2010 resolutions, that acknowledge that these rights are essential for the full enjoyment of all human rights and have an inextricable relation to the right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health (Arts. 11 and 12 of ICESCR). In April 2020, WSSCC co-organized an online dialogue on Eliminating inequalities in the WASH response to COVID-19. The online dialogue saw the participation of Government officials, UN entities, development partners, WASH professionals, CSOs, academic organizations, private sector operators, and donors.
