In 2015, WHO and UNICEF reported that only 12% of Ethiopia’s population have access to water on premises. High proportion of the population thus needs to fetch water for their survival. Considering the importance of time to fetch water on an individual’s health and well-being, we aim to demonstrate where water fetching issues are the most prevalent. This study highlights the widespread burden of fetching water and the significant disparities in terms of accessibility with regards to the location of the source within population groups. Characterization of collection time by regions, type of source, education level and water fetcher illustrated where work mostly remains to reach universal access to drinking water.
