African Development Bank (AfDB) funding support to WASH in HCF intervention 

As part of the Emergency COVID-19 Relief Assistance for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Improvement Program funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB), UNICEF worked with implementing partners, Community Empowerment and Development Agency (CEDA) and Community Organization for Development and Empowerment (CODE-SL) to construct over 55 modern toilets, 33 showers, 11 laundries, and 11 waste management facilities, including incinerators for treating waste in 11 Peripheral Health Units (PHUs) across eight districts in the country. The partnership also enabled the installation of water supply systems in the 11 PHUs and the distribution of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) materials through the District Health Management Teams (DHMTs) covering the eight districts.
