Abstract
From page 3: "This brief will show how: • poverty, hunger, environmental problems and diseases would be directly combated and significantly scaled back if fought with water access as a primary goal; • child and maternal mortality rates would drop; and • other important issues, including education and gender equality, would indirectly benefit from achievement of the safe drinking water and basic sanitation targets identified within the MDGs."
