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