Determinants of Health: Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

Access to clean water, adequate sanitation and good hygiene practices are imperative to maintaining optimal health and preventing the contraction and spread of a myriad of diseases. Unfortunately, in the communities in which CPAR works, far too few families have access to clean water and sanitation facilities or understand the link between proper hygiene and good health. CPAR works with communities to establish water points, build and install latrines, and provide hygiene training so that communities become equipped to manage the new infrastructure and adopt practices that promote good health and limit the spread of disease.
