Integrating WASH and Nutrition for Healthy Communities

Working through CARE Mali, the overall goal of WASHplus in Mali is to improve the nutritional status of 187,000 women of reproductive age and 60,000 of their children (especially those under two) in poor, rural households and communities. The programme had three objectives to reach this goal:

1. Increase supply of appropriate, affordable, and sustainable WASH solutions;

2. Increase demand for low-cost sanitation; and

3. Improve sanitation and hygiene practices and nutrition behaviours.
