Improved health through clean drinking water and sanitation
Since 2012, SDC is providing WASH infrastructure for approx. 10’000 beneficiaries in rural areas. Combined with good hygiene practice, this programme forms an important foundation for good communal health in that they reduce infections. Improved health raises the livelihood prospects of communities and their members. Gains in this area are reinforced by geographically linking WASH with SLDM interventions and by strengthening the capacity and responsibility of local authorities to manage and maintain infrastructure.
