Sanitation updates news, opinions and resources for sanitation for all m gasol nba

There is a growing interest in the development sector on menstrual hygiene (MH), and more organisations are working on this issue. WASH United, Simavi, World Vision and GIZ are launching a webinar series focusing on menstrual hygiene as an activity under the MH Alliance. This five-part, weekly webinar series will launch the week of 28 May (Menstrual Hygiene Day), with a different topic each week. This series aims to touch on many of the complex aspects of MH, including evidence, knowledge, menstrual products, infrastructure and policy. Below is a summary of the objectives, deliverables, outline and topics for these webinars:

Overall objective: To document and promote learning and connection between menstrual hygiene practitioners and interested professionals from different sectors, with a specific aim to refine and advance the global MH agenda. More specifically, we hope to

Deliverables: After each webinar, a one-page learning document will be produced noting key points discussed, questions for further discussion, resources highlighted, and action items identified. Learning and exchange will be consolidated and shared, such as in upcoming forums like the High-level Political Forum, as well via MH Day website and newsletter.

The webinar will take place every Thursday starting on 31 May 2018. It is free-of-charge and open to all interested professionals and individuals from all sectors. These webinars will be recorded and posted online for future access. Post-webinar discussion will take place on the SuSanA platform.

This paper presents an overview and meta-analysis of the effects of water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions around the world. It is based on 136 impact evaluations (randomized and quasi-experimental studies) that explore the effects of water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions on health and non-health outcomes, ranging from behavior change — such as the adoption of water treatment — to school attendance rates, to a reduction in diarrhea.

The selected impact evaluations were divided into five groups, and meta-regressions with fixed effects (at the regional level) and random effects were performed, controlling for each study’s characteristics (implementing organization, sample sizes, type of publication, number of publication views, and so forth). All results are reported as changes in odds ratios, with respect to the standard deviation of reported effects.

Water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions were found to increase the likelihood of behavior changes and the adoption of new hygiene practices by 17 percent. The smallest effects were observed from water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions aimed at reducing the rates of child mortality and non-diarrheal disease.

Water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions implemented in schools showed statistically significant results in reducing school absenteeism and dropouts. Similarly, the results showed a statistically significant aggregate likelihood of increased access to safe water and improved water quality, as well as increased water treatment options — a difference of one-fifth with respect to the standard deviation of the average effect size reported.

Finally, the results showed that water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions reduced the likelihood of the incidence of diarrheal and enteric disease by 13 percent, which is consistent with findings in other meta-analyses of the same subject

RESILIENCY IN NORTHERN GHANA (RING) QUARTERLY REPORT FY 2018 Q2 (January 1, 2018 – March 31, 2018). USAID, April 2018. To support improved sanitation in a sustainable manner, RING continued to promote the scale up of the Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) activity, triggering 106 new communities during the quarter and supporting 21 communities to reach open defecation free (ODF) status, bringing the cumulative number of ODF communities over the life of project (LOP) to 322, or 82% of the RING Project target.

CLIMATE CHANGE AND HEALTH IN MOZAMBIQUE IMPACTS ON DIARRHEAL DISEASE AND MALARIA. USAID, March 2018. The burden of diarrheal disease varies regionally within Mozambique: The northern and central regions exhibit strong seasonality of disease outbreaks. Disease burden is about 15 to 20 cases per 100 people per week.

Philippines – National Demographic and Health Survey 2017: Key Indicators. DHS, February 2018. Three-quarters of Filipino households (76%) use improved sanitation facilities (Table 3.1), which are defined as non-shared facilities that prevent people from coming into contact with human waste and thus reduce the transmission of cholera, typhoid, and other diseases.

Sustainable Water, Resilient Communities: The Challenge of Erratic Water – May 30, 2018, Winrock, Sustainable Water Partnership, USAID. In the fourth and final event of the “Sustainable Water, Resilient Communities” series, experts will discuss urban watersheds, transboundary water management, water-driven security risks, and the governance of water access and availability amid an increasingly uncertain future.

Aligning Institutions and Incentives for Sustainable Water Supply and Sanitation Services. World Bank, May 2018. New thinking that draws not only infrastructure economics but also on the understanding of political, behavioral, and institutional economics is needed.

May 17, 2018 – Vector-Borne and Water-Related Disease Workshop – Participants will get a broader understanding about the availability and accessibility of NASA EOS data to enhance the prediction and response to vector-borne and water-related disease
