 The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund has provided US$7.2 million for interventions in health, nutrition, and the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programme in rural areas of Laos.

 

The signing ceremony for the Health/Nutrition and WASH Multi-Year Work Plan 2017-2018 was held on Mar 17 in Vientiane Capital between Minister of Health Bounkong Syhavong and UNICEF Country Representative to Laos Ms Hongwei Gao in the presence of the relevant officials of both sides.

 

“The cooperation between UNICEF and the Ministry of Health will ensure that the most disadvantaged children and their families receive integrated maternal and child health immunization and nutrition services, that they have equitable access to and use of sustainable improved water sources and sanitation facilities, and adopt hygienic practices,” said Ms Hongwei Gao.

 

The cooperation will strengthen district health systems to ensure the implementation of the essential service package along the continuum of care approach and support the implementation of nutrition specific interventions including the feeding of infants and young children.

 

The work plan 2017-2018 will also support community service delivery of high impact new-born and child interventions to address morbidity due to common complications and implement WASH and climate change resilience policies, including the national strategy on rural water, sanitation and hygiene, and conduct reviews of guidelines, standards and designs of packages for WASH facilities in communities and schools.

 

Minister Bounkong Syhavong expressed his appreciation to UNICEF for its support to the health, nutrition and WASH programmes in rural areas of Laos.

 

The WASH programme will be implemented in selected schools and communities and will include behavioural change interventions on the sustainable use of WASH facilities, hygiene practices and disaster risk reduction.  Community resilience will be built to respond to climate change and natural disasters.
