The aim of water and Sanitation Hygiene is to improve access to safe clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene practices in South Sudan. The majority of communities living in the parts of the country have no access to safe drinking water. The few available boreholes do not function or either located in far distant areas. In addition, the communities have no proper sanitation, which leads to the increased cases of water borne diseases and respiratory complications as a result of contaminated water sources. This WASH programme aims to adopt an integrated approach in that, it will address the issues of safe clean drinking water, sanitation as well as hygiene and behavioral change in the community.
