In recent years, there has been emerging evidence showing the need for integration of WASH and nutrition programmes in order to achieve greater impact (e.g. on reduced stunting and open defecation) in both emergency and development contexts. SDG 2 (End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture) and SDG 6 (Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all) articulate the need for achieving sustainable and optimal WASH and nutrition outcomes.
Drinking water comes from a variety of sources including public water systems, private wells, or bottled water. Ensuring safe and healthy drinking water may be as simple as turning on the tap from a regulated public water supply system. Other water sources may require some form of treatment before drinking for example the use of water filter, a check on water fluoridation, or an inspection to ensure a septic tank is not too close to a private well. It is important to know where drinking water comes from, how it has been treated, and if it is safe to drink.
Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is a serious public health and human rights problem with both short-term and long-term consequences on the survivors' physical, mental, and sexual and reproductive health. Interventions geared towards caring for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence are often complex and multi-leveled comprising of medical, psychological, social, protection, prevention of recurrence and access to justice.
Each year, a lot of resources are spent trying to modify human behaviour. While some intervention strategies are successful, many fall short of their intended goals. Research shows that those interventions most likely to achieve desired outcomes are based on a clear understanding of the targeted health behaviours and the environmental context in which they occur. Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) has been successfully used by various health promotion programs to improve the well being of target populations.
