Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Management
Access to clean water, good sanitation and hygiene is very important and plays a key role in the good health practices and wider community development. Poor WASH practices can lead to diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, pneumonia, trachoma, malaria, yellow fever and many others.
It is widely accepted that provision of WASH services will only bring benefits if the people using the services are willing to recognize their own role and responsibilities, by adopting good hygiene practices and new methods of waste disposal. The users should also be able to participate in, or at least be aware of, the planning, design and management of WASH services.
