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

ACHAP Secretariat in partnership with Emory University with support from Water lines USA hosted a training on WASH in Health facilities in the second week of June 2018 from 11th to 16th in Nairobi, Kenya . The training brought together participants from 5 CHAs (Christian Health Associations), members of ACHAP coming from 5 African countries such as Lesotho, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Kenya.
