Lack of access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) can affect health and nutritional status through diarrheal diseases, intestinal parasite infections and environmental enteropathy. WASH may also impact nutritional status indirectly by necessitating walking long distances in search of water and sanitation facilities and diverting a mother’s time away from childcare. Growth through Nutrition works with the government of Ethiopia to increase water access by developing and/or rehabilitating water points in over 30 project woredas and stimulating the private sector to increase the supply of quality, affordable WASH products and services.
The webinar will present an overview of the relationship between WASH and nutrition along with key lessons learned and recommendations for WASH programming based on recent findings and current best practices. As an example of specific WASH programming, the findings and lessons learned from the research on Growth through Nutrition water supply schemes will also be presented and explored.
