Third issue of WHY newsletter highlights water and sanitation as crucial for life

The third newsletter from journalists in the WHY network focuses on the importance for health of ensuring water and sanitation to the whole population. An editorial from WHO/Europe explains how this challenge is tackled in the urban context. The WHY is an initiative coordinated by WHO/Europe and its partners within the framework of the Fifth Environment and Health, held in Parma in March 2010.

The newsletter features articles from the winners of the WHO Media Awards, assigned at the Parma Conference, who in turns have the role of editor-in-chief.
