Combatting COVID-19 in Africa: Lessons Learned Series Volume 2

AMCOW and WALIS have developed the Lessons Learned Series, which examines emerging experiences, knowledge, opportunities, and challenges of African-led WASH policy development and implementation. The Series also identifies individual country solutions that others can replicate, with a focus on COVID-19 response mechanisms.

In Mozambique, WALIS supported the National Directorate of Water Supply and Sanitation (DNAAS) to develop the National Water and Sanitation Information System (SINAS). SINAS is a database which provides reliable WASH data at the central, provincial and district levels. SINAS is now used to help stop the spread of COVID-19 infections.
