UNC Water and Health Conference

The Water and Health Conference: Where Science Meets Policy took place October 7–11, 2019, at the University of North Carolina (UNC)-Chapel Hill. The UNC Water Institute’s annual event has grown to become one of the most important annual gatherings in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector held in the United States.


The 2019 Water and Health Conference: Where Science Meets Policy explored drinking water supply, sanitation, hygiene and water resources in both the developing and developed worlds with a strong public health emphasis.


In 2019 the themes were:

- Humanitarian WaSH

- WaSH Financing and Markets

- Climate Variability and Water Security

- Evidence Based WaSH

- WaSH and Environmental Health


This year many side events and verbal and poster presentations tackled a wide range of topics including: data-driven decision-making, taking a systems approach to WASH service delivery, market-based approaches to sanitation enterprises, and recent learning on behavior change.
