An Incremental Approach to WASH in HCF: A Donor Perspective and Insights from DRC


The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invests in WASH initiatives in health care facilities (HCF) in order to reduce morbidity and mortality related to inadequate WASH in HCF, and to fulfill a commitment to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in both WASH and health. The Clean Clinic Approach, developed within USAID’s Maternal and Child Survival Program and implemented with support from Save the Children, is an example of an approach to improving WASH in HCF that USAID supports. 

In this webinar, Jesse Shapiro, Senior WASH Advisor at USAID, and Jason Lopez, Senior WASH Specialist at Save the Children, share their experience implementing the Clean Clinic Approach in HCF in rural districts in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The webinar was organized as part of a series from the WASH in HCF Initiative.
