PROMOTING WASH IN HEALTHCARE FACILITIES

KIWASH uses the WASH Facility Improvement Tool (WASH FIT) risk-based approach that was developed by the World Health Organization to ensure WASH infrastructure and practices are safely managed, sustained, and provide reliable services. This activity includes working with WSPs to ensure that health care facilities receive reliable and sufficient water supply. In partnership with the Ministry of Health, KIWASH is reinforcing regular cleaning and disinfection and proper hand hygiene practices in facilities. We are also providing water and hygiene kits to caregivers attending maternal and antenatal care. This reinforces desirable hygiene practices, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic with a goal of distributing 5,000 hygiene kits to vulnerable households.
