DIPLOMA IN WATER SANITATION AND HYGIENE
Development Dimensions Africa is an international humanitarian training
organization whose mission is to empower humanitarian professionals with practical
skills to enable them deliver humanitarian services more effectively. Our objective is
to make humanitarian work successful, relevant and effective.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) is an important element in public health for
every community. Better WASH situation is a crucial indicator for poverty index in
any community. It equally becomes very critical in a humanitarian action where lack
of safe water and toilets can impact on public health due to the spread of diseases.
Globally, it is estimated that over 1.3 billion people cannot access safe drinking water
while close to 2.5 billion people do not have access to a toilet. These situations can
contribute to the spread of diseases such as cholera and diarrhea especially among
children leading to great mortality and morbidity in the community affected.
The Diploma in Water and Sanitation and Hygiene Course explores the challenges
posed by lack of WASH services in many communities and humanitarian situations
across the world.
The course also assists learners on how to design Wash programme to mitigate those
challenges. It is an important course for those working in organizations involved in
Water and Sanitation such as municipalities, public institutions, non-governmental
organizations, international development planners, government bodies, public health
and community health organizations among others.
