JOIN US 12 MARCH, WEBINAR ON WASH IN HEALTHCARE FACILITIES IN AFGHANISTAN
As you likely know, the theme for World Water Day 2019 (22 March) is Water for All. Water is a human right, and we are hosting two webinars to discuss what World Vision is doing and learning in two key areas where the realisation of the right to WASH is severely lacking -- healthcare facilities and people with disabilities. (The second webinar will be in early April.)
For the first webinar, taking place on Tuesday, 12 March at 1200h UTC, we will host a webinar entitled: 'Addressing the Challenges to WASH in Healthcare Facilities in Afghanistan'. We have the privilege to hear from World Vision Afghanistan's WASH Sector Lead, Rosanna Keam, as well as Lindsay Denny, Technical Advisor for Global Waters 2020, on the following:
-Why they did this work: The status of WASH in HCF in Afghanistan
-How they did this work: An overview of the WASH Con tool and the partnership between Emory and WV Afghanistan
-What they experienced and learned: A summary of key findings
-What are WV Afghanistan and partners doing to respond to what they've learned?
After we hear from Rosanna and Lindsey, we will have time for discussion and Q&A. Please come prepared to learn and participate! After you register, you will receive an email with details on how to join the webinar.
Join the Global WASH in Healthcare Facilities Discussion. Check out the WASH in HCF Initiative, hosted by the Center for Global Safe WASH at Emory University. They have been hosting a series of monthly learning webinars. You can find links to webinar recordings here.
