WASH in health care facilities

Health care facilities in Tanzania

The WHO/UNICEF global action plan which was launched in 2015 aims to ensure that all health care facilities in all settings have adequate water, sanitation and hygiene services by 2030. To realize this aim, global task teams composed of WASH and Health professionals have been established to drive progress in four main areas: advocacy; leadership and policy; monitoring; evidence; and facility-based improvements. Within all four streams of work there is a focus on national action and solutions, documenting lessons learned, and working jointly with health sector colleagues to drive change in key areas such as quality universal health coverage, maternal, newborn and child health, infection prevention and control and anti-microbial resistance.
