WASH – Islamabad and Rawalpindi

Piped municipal water is available in most houses in urban areas and the sewerage system is generally acceptable.

In the slum areas of Islamabad, the hygiene conditions are very poor and there is normally no effective system of toilets or sanitation.

However, there remains a lack of awareness within the refugee communities on general health and hygiene, which could be alleviated through additional mass information campaigns and training sessions.
