Integration was a core strategic objective of the WASHplus project, and almost all implementation countries had an integration component. Integration took place across different sectors including: WASH-HIV, WASH-nutrition, WASH-NTD, WASH-education.
WASHplus integrated WASH into HIV in Kenya and Uganda. These were deliberate integrated programs implemented with HIV funding. In Kenya, WASHplus also integrated inclusive sanitation into the Kenya WASH-HIV program to bring WASH to all vulnerable populations.
The report provides a summary of the key cross-cutting themes that informed the six-year WASHplus activity; describes WASH and HAP country-level activities; and includes links to tools, stories, learning briefs, reports, and other resources that provide a full picture of project experience and learning.
WASHplus partnered with the Strengthening TB and AIDS Response in South Western Uganda Project or STAR-SW, managed by the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, to pilot a campaign to teach youths living with HIV and their caretakers to safely and hygienically manage menstruation.
