The majority of these cases are due to unsafe water, inadequate sanitation or insufficient hygiene.

The academies strongly recommend politicians to regard access to drinking water and sanitation as a unity, in accordance with the Millennium Goals of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The G8 states should work towards ensuring that people all over the world have access not only to drinking water of acceptable quality, but also to basic sanitation. This involves providing technical support and training local technicians, supporting researchers developing vaccines against waterborne pathogens, and local capacity-building initiatives to increase awareness for improved hygiene standards.
