This course is designed to introduce students to both development and disaster settings of low-income countries where contaminated water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene (WASH) are the cause of serious health problems. In this course, important concepts in WASH will be covered so that students can understand what is needed to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate a WASH program or a WASH component of multi-sectoral programs. It emphasizes the need to develop effective, appropriate, accessible and affordable WASH interventions to reduce the global burden of disease.
