Poor sanitation has serious implications for health including a large burden of diarrheal diseases, which remains the second leading killer of children under 5 globally, and a large burden of intestinal worms. Improving access to sanitation and hygiene and changing behaviours can bring not only health benefits but also many other positive changes in a community, including social, economic and environmental gains.
Deepening our understanding of the linkages between sanitation interventions and health outcomes provides key insight and evidence for decision-makers making investments in sanitation services. We invite you to join an interactive webinar where experts will discuss how these critical connections at a community level can be improved.
The webinar on 28 January 2016 brought together an excellent panel of two speakers who presented their approaches in the area of “Community initiatives for sanitation and health”:
Juliet Waterkeyn (Africa Ahead in Zimbabwe and Rwanda) – speaking about community hygiene and health clubs for improving family health at scale
Mohammad Monirul Hasan (ZEF, University of Bonn, Germany) – speaking about the agriculture water, sanitation and hygiene (AG-WATSAN) nexus and improved health in Bangladesh
This webinar was recorded into 3 parts. Part 2 and 3 from this webinar can be watched from the links below.
