WATSAN Ngozi - Burundi Water and Sanitation Project

In 2011, the SDC launched a new regional Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) Programme in the Great Lakes region. Within this framework the Swiss TPH was mandated to support WATSAN projects for health centres already supported by the Swiss TPH PASS Ngozi health programme.

The programme aims to ensure access to clean running water for patients and staff in health facilities, improve the quality of care in health centres and hospitals through the rehabilitation of sanitation facilities promoting better hygiene (construction of latrines and showers respecting national and international standards, setting up waste disposal systems), and to inform patients and caregivers on  the importance of good hygiene practices.
