On 14 - 18 November 2016, 160 Experts from 16 Asian countries came together in Jakarta to exchange their experience regarding innovative WASH in Schools (WinS) approaches. The 5th WASH in Schools International Learning Exchange (ILE), was hosted by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Indonesia – with support from UNICEF and GIZ.
The conference concluded with a general agreement among the participants that WinS goes beyond building toilets and providing water supply. Ensuring WinS requires clear arrangements for cleaning and maintenance, providing supplies, changing hygiene behaviors, along with monitoring, financing, and coordination at each level. Political will and leadership from the education sector are key ingredients, as well as the involvement of parents and communities. While the issues are broad and approaches to addressing them depend on each country’s context, future ILEs will continue to provide concrete ideas for doing WinS better.
