ACHAP in partnership with Emory University empowered WASH Champions from 5CHAs from 5 African countries in Nairobi, Kenya
The Center for Global Safe Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene at Emory University (CGSW) developed an assessment tool to evaluate WASH conditions within health Care facilities in low- and middle-income countries. This tool is known as the WASH Conditions Assessment Tool.
The tool helps to do the following:
- Develop a comprehensive overview of the status of WASH conditions, infrastructure and resources in a given HCF
- Provide real-time data for information and prioritization of activities to improve WASH in HCF
- Contributing to the evidence base for advocacy for WASH in HCF
