Water, sanitation and hygiene in health care facilities – action-oriented solutions and learning (Kathmandu, Nepal; 27-30th March 2017)
A 3-day international learning event which will build upon the global meetings that took place in March 2015 (Geneva, Switzerland) and in March 2016 (London, UK).

The event will be action-oriented and provide an opportunity for actors at all levels (local, national, regional and global) to share solutions and jointly problem solve on overcoming key barriers to strengthening water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in health care facilities, including standards, policies and actual services.  A strong focus will be on lessons learned from embedding WASH in health care facilities with other health efforts and initiatives, including but not limited to, maternal and child health, quality universal health coverage (qUHC), health systems resilience, infection prevention control (IPC), antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and emergencies. The meeting will also allow for identifying innovative delivery mechanisms and how to foster effective partnerships among all actors (Government, including health facility staff, international organizations, NGOs, health professional organizations, academia and the private sector).


This meeting is no longer open for registration. A report from the meeting will be shared on this site in April/May 2017.
