WASHplus in Kenya
The WASHplus project in Kenya supports the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation and its partners to integrate improved water, sanitation and hygiene practices into HIV polices and activities. The project works closely with communities, encouraging households to identify actions they can take to improve health and prevent diarrhea. These actions include treating and storing drinking water safely, washing hands with soap at critical times, increasing use of latrines and managing menstrual hygiene to prevent HIV transmission.The program works with the Ministry of Health, the National AIDS and STI Control Program, the Division of Community Health Services and the APHIAplus projects.
