Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion (WASH): Programme Design and Implementation Mobile App
The aim of any WASH programme is to promote good personal and environmental hygiene in order to protect health, as shown in the diagram below.
How does it work?
An effective WASH programme relies on an exchange of information between the agency and the disaster-affected population in order to identify key hygiene problems and culturally appropriate solutions. Ensuring the optimal use of all water supply and sanitation facilities and practising safe hygiene will result in the greatest impact on public health. Hygiene promotion is vital to a successful WASH intervention. The focus on hygiene promotion is general and specific. In general terms, hygiene promotion is integral to all of the sections and is reflected in the indicators for water supply, excreta disposal, vector control, solid waste management and drainage. More specifically, the focus narrows on two hygiene promotion standards in this chapter and relates to particular hygiene promotion activities. The Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion (WASH): Programme Design and Implementation mobile app includes key actions, key indicators and guidance notes.
