Providing access to safe water and sanitation is a fundamental human right and is essential to any humanitarian response. Water and sanitation programming, alongside hygiene promotion, is key to reducing deaths from water-related diseases in emergency contexts. This highly participatory course, with group exercises and theory based sessions, provides an overview of WASH in emergencies, identifying key issues and training participants on key technical skills.
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Describe the role of WASH within the wider emergency response context
- List the minimum global and institutional standards for WASH
- Identify and evaluate potential emergency water supply sources
- Conduct tests to determine the quality of water and be able to describe or demonstrate both bulk and household level water treatment techniques
- Identify appropriate short and medium term options for sanitation and excreta disposal in a range of environments, including those with high water tables, or flooded areas
- Explain the key considerations to be taken when designing a cholera outbreak response and the principles of disease surveillance and prevention
