WALIS COVID-19 Response Video


This video captures the USAID Water for Africa Through Leadership and Institutional Support (WALIS) response to COVID-19 in Senegal in interviews with local leaders and project staff (in French, with English subtitles). Since 2018, USAID’s WALIS project has collaborated with the Government of Senegal to collect critical field data on its public sanitation facilities in select areas of the country. In 2020, following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the project expanded to 76 communes in the Dakar, Diourbel, and Thiès regions. This partnership among the MEA, Ministry of Health and Social Action, and Ministry of National Education, with USAID’s support through WALIS and its local implementing partner, Centre de Suivi Ecologique, will allow Senegal to better address its WASH policies and service delivery needs in the face of the pandemic and in the future.
