WASH Efforts Essential To Humanitarian Efforts, Protecting Health Workers In South Sudan
Frontline Health Workers Coalition: WASH on the Front Line
Assumpta Nantume, communications associate at the Global Health Council, discusses the role of WASH efforts in South Sudan, where conflict and violence has resulted in a worsening humanitarian crisis. She writes, “Ensuring access to WASH services plays an important role in safeguarding the health and well-being of individuals and communities. It plays an equally important role in protecting the health workers who protect our communities. A lack of basic WASH services compromises the ability to provide safe care and presents serious health risks to both those who seek treatment and those who provide it” (8/26).
