2015 is the deadline for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and it's the time to reflect on the progress made.

WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation was established in 1990 and has monitored water changes in national, regional and global coverage ever since.

Their latest report "Progress on sanitation and drinking water: 2015 update and MDG assessment" looks at how far we have come in the past 25 years and how far we still have to go to achieve universal access to sanitation and safe drinking water.

This feature "5 things you need to know" gives you the highlights of the report and the MDG achievement.
