The ‘GUIDELINES FOR CLIMATE-RESILIENT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE HEALTH CARE FACILITIES IN FIJI’ (CRESHCF Guidelines) was developed to assist Fiji’s Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MoHMS) and all health sector stakeholders to include sustainable, environment-friendly and climate-resilient healthcare facilities (HCFs) into the full life cycle of health care capital works.
The Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) is a UN-Water initiative implemented by WHO. The objective of GLAAS is to provide policy- and decision-makers at all levels with a reliable, easily accessible, comprehensive and global analysis of the investments and enabling environment to make informed decisions for sanitation, drinking-water and hygiene.
This success story presents the implementation of the “Clean Clinic Approach” (CCA) for strengthening water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where MCSP worked in partnership with the Ministry of Health (MOH) from 2015. The CCA aims to increase access to WASH services whilst improving adherence to best practices at the community and health facility level to reduce the risk of healthcare associated infections (HAI). The MOH and MCSP worked together to improve the quality of health services and outcomes in two provincial health divisions (DPS) of north-western DRC: Bas-Uélé and Tshopo.
