While clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene should be a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere, for too many people in urban areas, they aren’t.
Without these basics, the poorest and most marginalised people suffer ill-health, miss out on an education and lack opportunities to support themselves and their families.
In urban centres of Myanmar, inadequate WASH facilities are a significant contributor to lower health, nutrition and mortality outcomes. Our three urban projects based in Yangon region address various cross-cutting issues related to WASH.
In rural Myanmar, we are working on enhancing WASH in communities through community-driven models and WASH in health care centres through infection prevention and control practices. Our ongoing projects target a wide range of interventions, that are supported by governments, partners and communities in which we work.
By putting women, children and girls, persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups in the heart of our work, we will collaborate with the government and key stakeholders to deliver sustainable services that provide lasting change in these communities.
