The GWPP mission is to be a knowledge resource and hub on water pathogens which will guide the goals for sanitation and achieving safe water around the world using the power of new information technology and tools.

The knowledge hub is a developing platform to support global exposure assessments, risk assessments, and enable evaluation of sanitation technologies for achieving health-based targets. The current GWP network of scientists and students are developing an open access online resource for sharing and retrieving databases, quantitative information, tools and educational materials on pathogens associated with excreta and wastewater.

Finally the GWPP is updating and transforming a critical resource.
