The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) remains one of the challenging humanitarian and development issues in Afghanistan. Limited access to WASH means a significant burden of poor health, nutrition, education and protection for children and women. The revised Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP 2018) target envisaged a need for reaching 1.63 million people with WASH services in 2018. The Cluster partners have successfully reached 1,542,983 people during the period of January to end of September 2018. There has been a good progress in reaching the overall HRP target as partners also responded a sizable caseload of drought affected population (753,187 people) and caseload of internally displaced population (366,029 people). Partners have also embarked on longer term solution project in drought affected areas covering estimated 388,000 people, mostly in the place of origin.
