Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

Courses Category

This short course in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) targets practicing officers with limited training in WASH. The course was developed in response to the many people working in the WASH sector who lack specialized training and skills in that field.

The 8-week program of study has participants spending 3 weeks (full-time) at the university studying, while 4 weeks are spent at suitable workplaces or field sites. The final week of the course is spent at MakSPH for a presentation of project or field work, a final examination, and a certificate award ceremony.
