Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) related diseases contribute to high mortality and morbidity rates in emergency and post-emergency situations. Even in the absence of an emergency, diarrhoea kills over 30,000 children per week worldwide. During protracted war and conflict in particular diarrhoeal diseases can often kill more people than the conflict itself.
Hygiene and sanitation promotion is the centerpiece to a successful WASH intervention in emergency contexts. Effective hygiene and sanitation promotion is based on dialogue and interaction with affected communities; working in partnership with them forms the basis for successful and accountable programming.
Better emergency response in public health is achieved through better preparedness. Such preparedness is the result of targeted capacity building and knowledge development by governments, humanitarian agencies, local and civil society organizations, communities and individuals to anticipate and respond effectively towards emergency situations. It is upon this premise that we have organized a training to build the capacity of key humanitarian actors on effective hygiene and sanitation promotion in emergencies.
UN, Government and NGO staff including project managers, officers, assistants, health workers, hygiene promoters, public health officers and facilitators.
The training method of delivery will consist of interactive and recorded online sessions, documentaries, articles, reference materials, quizzes and assessments.
