Dear Knowledge Point members,
Elisabeth posted this question in the SuSanA Forum (http://forum.susana.org/forum/categor...)
Refering to the following Wiki Passage: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_S...) After 2000, WSSCC expanded its work to include advocacy and communications. It introduced WASH as an umbrella term for water, sanitation and hygiene; this acronym has been broadly adopted in international development circles.
This is just minor question but I am curious if any of the more senior folks can help me with this: Who invented the term WASH (for water, sanitation, hygiene, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WASH)? Was it really WSSCC?
Is this statement correct? If yes, can we find a document from WSSCC in the year 2000 where the term WASH was first used?
Could someone of your help us with the answer?
Thank you very much and best regards,
Jasmin (on behalf of the SuSanA secretariat)
