If a water source becomes contaminated it can quickly turn into a medical crisis. Water and sanitation specialists are responsible for the design and management of water and sanitation projects. Water projects can range from setting up clean water sources in refugee camps to managing the emergency provision of drinking water after a natural disaster.

Sanitation work could involve appropriately siting and building latrines or taking care of waste management in a hospital
