Integrating Safe Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene into Infant and Child Nutrition Programmes
CHC developed a training and resource pack for USAID funded Wash Plus project Uganda led by FHI 360. The overall objective of the Resource Pack is to facilitate the training of village health teams (VHTs), community knowledge workers (CKWs), peer support groups (PSGs), and other outreach workers on how they can help household and community members to overcome, or change, the many daily obstacles to improved water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) practices in the home. It is based on the principle that new practices can be adopted and current practices can be modified or changed in small ways that are acceptable to the householder. These small changes will make a difference to reduce diarrhoea and improve families’ health and well-being. This Resource Pack is part of the WASHplus project’s effort to compliment targeted nutrition support by the ministry of health (MOH) to selected districts and health facilities using the Nutrition Assessment and Counselling and Support (NACS) app.
