What's on Tap: Recent WASH Research

We hope this first issue of Water on Tap: Recent WASH Research will be useful to you and we welcome suggestions to make it more useful. The purpose of this initiative is to inform subscribers of the latest peer-review research on WASH-related topics. The selected studies were identified from the latest issues of 35 WASH-related journals. A new issue will be published on a monthly basis and this first issue contains peer-review studies published in April or May 2022 and is organized by subject categories.

The primary audiences for these summaries are WASH researchers from around the world. Practitioners and policy makers may also find this as a useful resource. Be sure to click on the subscription link to subscribe to receive future issues.
