A presentation given at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference, Bangkok, Thailand (January 2020). The presentation was given as part of a session hosted by WHO, WaterAid and the National Public Health Institute of Cambodia. The session objectives were to:
Discuss key entry points and strategies for jointly addressing quality and WASH in health care facilities and the added benefits of such an approach.
How linkages between national quality policy and strategy and WASH in health facilities were used to drive action: experiences in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India and the Philippines.
Orient participants to recent WASH and quality tools (including quality implementation guide, WASH FIT
) and how they can be adapted to support participants to engage in quality and WASH improvements.
