Diseases caused by poor water supply and poor sanitation put a heavy burden on the health care and education systems. Safe water, hand-washing means in good order, latrines, and hygiene are especially important for improving treatment outcomes in maternal, newborn and child health. Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services increase the resilience of health systems to prevent disease outbreaks.
The findings of the study show that the types of drinking water supply systems used in the health care organizations (HCO) under study are different, are associated with general territorial issues of water supply, and depend on the geographical location of the object (city/village), sources of water, local government capabilities, and also their interest in improving the public health situation in their jurisdiction.
This publication is the result of the assessment of the impact of the expenditure on the quality of maternal, newborn and child health care. The study was conducted by the Monitoring Center PF with the support of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as part of the project “Improving Maternal and Child Health Care System“(2018-2021) funded by the Government of Japan.
