2021 UNC Water and Health Conference: Science, Policy and Practice Registration Now Open

The 2021 UNC Water and Health Conference: Science, Policy and Practice will be held October 4 – 8, 2021. The conference will explore drinking water supply, sanitation, hygiene and water resources in both developing and developed countries with a public health emphasis. 

What is the Water and Health Conference?

Since its founding in 2009, the goal of the Water Institute at the University of North Carolina (UNC) has been to inform the way the world works on water, sanitation and hygiene issues by generating the evidence that drives improvements in both practice and policy.

 Through this period, the Water Institute has remained steadfast in its commitment to improving public health by achieving universal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) services that are safe, affordable and sustainable – particularly for the most marginalized. The annual UNC Water and Health Conference is intended to advance these goals by creating a space where policymakers, practitioners and researchers can gather to review the evidence, interrogate the science and improve old and develop new approaches to expanding WaSH access.

The 2021 Conference will continue to explore the latest learnings around WaSH. We are keeping many of the core elements you’ve come to expect such as plenariesside eventsverbal presentations and poster presentations. As in the past, the plenaries will be an opportunity to explore critical themes emerging in 2020. Side events will be collaborative learning experiences focused on new and emerging practices. Verbal and poster presentations will focus on emerging research.

The 2021 UNC Water and Health Conference registration is now live on our website at register.waterandhealthconference.com! Registration is free again this year thanks to the support of our sponsors.

Please register once to participate in the Conference live or asynchronously (watch the recorded content after hours). After you complete registration, you will receive a confirmation email from waterinstitute@unc.edu. The Conference portal will be accessible to attendees at the end of September.
