WASH FIT is a risk-based, continuous improvement framework with a set of tools for undertaking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) improvements as part of wider quality improvements in healthcare facilities. It is aimed at small primary, and in some instances secondary, healthcare facilities in low and middle-income countries. WASH FIT is an adaptation of the water safety plan (WSP) approach, which is recommended in the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality as the most effective way of ensuring continuous provision of safe drinking water.

WASH FIT Mobile is a free, open-access digital tool, based on the WASH FIT guide developed by WHO and UNICEF. WASH FIT is designed to help healthcare facilities improve quality of care through improved water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in healthcare facilities. Built on the mWater digital monitoring platform, the tool includes forms and dashboards for implementing a risk-based management approach using core indicators for WASH in health care facilities developed by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
