Good sanitation is key for reducing water borne diseases. MedWater facilitates the construction of latrines led by the direction of the community health promoters
Community health promoters lead trainings in the community to help identify sources of disease and figure out ways to clean them up. Building a value system around good health is the first step towards adopting good sanitation practices.
Climbing the Sanitation ladder
MedWater works with communities to identify what sanitation options are the most accessible and the most affordable for the community. Sometimes a basic intervention is the first step, with more durable infrastructure developing as resources become available.
