Project Details

Royal Roads University and its partner Transform International (Canada) will test an innovative solution to improving water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in health care facilities (HFC) in Malawi, specifically for women since they constitute the majority of the HCF users, often for delivery and postpartum recovery. This project will focus on the STREAMS (systems, training, education, and monitoring support) approach by combining WASH best practices and two circuit riders to implement, support and sustain WASH infrastructure and improved behaviours and practices.
