Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Artibonite (en)

This initiative aims to reduce the number of deaths caused by diarrheal diseases by reducing sanitation risks in the most vulnerable zones of Artibonite. The initiative will also aim to improve access to potable water, to sanitation, and will make concerted efforts to sensitize families of the most vulnerable women and children to the benefits of improved hygiene practices. This UNICEF initiative will focus on the province of Artibonite, where cholera remains an ever-present threat and where diarrheal diseases remain the most common cause of mortality among children under 5 years of age. UNICEF will work closely with the Government of Haiti and with other important stakeholders who work in water sanitation, and hygiene, both at the national and regional level to maximise coordination and impact of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions. Amongst some of the project activities: improve access to 150,000 people, mostly women, to drinking water in communities across the province of Artibonite; educate 25,000 girls and boys and 600 teachers in 100 schools in Artibonite on good practices for hygiene and cholera prevention; establish well-managed and sustainable WASH systems in 15 clinics and hospitals and 34 orphanages. This project is part of Canada's Maternal, Newborn and Child Health commitment.
