World Health Organization data shows that 1.7 million deaths a year are attributable to unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene. 54.2 million disability adjusted life years (DALY) are caused by unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene – each DALY represents the loss of one year of equivalent full health. Interventions to improve water, sanitation, and hygiene practices have been shown to reduce sickness from diarrhea by between one-quarter and one-third.

Communities can examine existing hygiene behaviors, practices, traditions and understand how transmission of disease takes place and how it can be prevented at a household level. Girls who are unable to access clean safe water, separate toilets and hand washing facilities at school are much more likely to drop out.

Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) training supports water, hygiene and sanitation projects by increasing hygiene awareness within communities.

The course equips community workers working with vulnerable communities – where there is low water and sanitation coverage, with technical skills that is appropriate in WASH programming.
