Total population with access to improved drinking-water source (JMP)

Population totale ayant accès à l'eau potable (JMP)

Población con accesso al agua potable saludable (JMP)

Definition:
Percentage of the total population using improved water sources. An “improved” source is one that is likely to provide "safe" water, such as a household connection, a borehole, etc. Current information does not allow yet to establish a relationship between access to safe water and access to improved sources, but WHO and UNICEF are examining this relationship.
