Making Progress: WASH in Healthcare Facilities Virtual Event on May 5th 2017


Are you interested in improving the quality of care in healthcare facilities? With almost 40% of healthcare facilities in low and middle income countries lacking a basic water service, and 20% without basic sanitation, this issue is among the most pressing facing health professionals.

As part of the Healthy Start Campaign, our friends from WaterAid invite you to join an expert panel of speakers operating at facility, policy implementation and research levels to find out what the challenges are in overcoming this crisis and how progress is being made.

This event will look at how improving quality of care for mothers and newborns can be enhanced through integrating water, sanitation and hygiene within healthcare facilities. Participants will discuss both the practical interventions and policy changes required to make progress happen and examine the wider implications including the importance of WASH for delivering effective infection prevention and control and tackling the rise of antimicrobial resistance.

The free webinar takes place on Friday May 5 at 11am BST/London, click here to secure your place and get more information.
