Join us for a webinar on the safety and wellbeing of sanitation workers during COVID-19 in South Asia.

Sanitation workers are providing an essential public service even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite working in a dangerous profession under heightened risks, little is known about how they are coping with COVID-19.
WaterAid facilitated rapid assessments in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan to understand the challenges being faced by sanitation workers in the midst of lockdowns, and identify potential solutions.
Join us as we share the regional synthesis of these studies, followed by discussion with a panel of urban and development experts.
