Assessing Water Quality in Schools Around the World

Water quality is an important issue to address in schools around the world. Access to clean and safe water for drinking, hygienic, and waste purposes is essential for the health and well-being of students in our schools. Issues with water quality can pose serious risks to the health of students, potentially leading to illnesses which hinder a student’s educational outcomes. There is an adequate amount of water quality in schools research out there, but there has yet to be a study that compares water quality across countries located on different continents. This research proposal seeks to address this global issue by conducting a systematic assessment of water quality in schools located within a variety of specific regions around the world. Data from the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (JMP) will be used to find and assess water quality over time.
