13.6.2  Poverty

Poverty is a major cause of public health problems in Ethiopia. Although we hope this will change, in reality it is likely that poverty will be a problem in the future as well. Poverty makes it difficult for people to access safe water and find solutions for the sanitation problems in the country. Lack of resources, lack of education and limited political, social and economic influence all have a significant impact on the provision of safe water.
