WASHplus Project Annual Report for Year Four
The WASHplus project supports healthy households and communities by creating and delivering
interventions that lead to improvements in access, practices, and health outcomes related to water
supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and household air pollution (HAP). This five-year project (20102015), funded through USAID’s Bureau for Global Health (AID-OAA-A-10-00040) and led by FHI 360 in partnership with CARE and Winrock International, uses at-scale programming as well as integrated approaches to reduce diarrheal diseases and acute respiratory infections, the two top killers of children under five years of age globally. WASHplus can integrate WASH and HAP activities into existing education, HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health and nutrition programs and build strong in-country partnerships to increase impact. In addition, WASHplus is charged with promoting innovation in the WASH and HAP sectors.
