Introduction: There are frequently no water facilities, sanitary facilities, or hygiene programs in many Asian schools. Objective: To ascertain the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs impact in schools across Asia, a thorough study of the literature was conducted. Methodology: PubMed and Google Scholar, among other web sources, were used to extract the data. PRISMA guidelines were adhered to throughout the whole search process. Nine publications in all that satisfied the established inclusion criteria were examined. Results: Even while some analyses failed to find significantly increases in statistical gains in improving health or showed that benefits depend on the type and context of therapies, several research have shown that students with diseases do better than the general population. According to several studies, there have been changes to WASH knowledge, attitudes, and practices, such as not using soap while washing hands. Conclusions: It is necessary to do more research to find out how school-based WASH initiatives could help in improving the habit of good hygiene in community and extended family member health. Even while adopting WASH programming in schools does not guarantee success, making sure that there is enough promotion of sanitation, clean water and hygiene approach has the potential to dramatically increase inclusion, equity, health, and education.
