Author: A collection of WASH in HCF stakeholders


This document describes ten immediate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) actions that low-resource healthcare facilities can undertake with limited budget in the near-term (0-3 months) to prepare for and address COVID-19. On the second page, WHO and UNICEF have provided input on how to best adapt their Eight Practical Steps in the midst of COVID-19. Finally, there is a compilation of WASH in HCF & COVID-19 resources for action.

The document is also available in French, Spanish and Portuguese.
