What is BabyWASH?

BabyWASH integrates water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions into maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), early childhood development (ECD) and nutrition, to have a more profound impact on child health outcomes in the first 1000 days of life. Key interventions focus on hotspots in the first 1,000 days, including delivery and the first week of life, the onset of complementary feeding, and throughout a child’s mobility.

The BabyWASH Coalition is a group of organisations focused on increasing integration between the water sanitation and hygiene (WASH), early childhood development (ECD), nutrition, and maternal newborn and child health (MNCH) sectors to improve child well-being in the first 1000 days. We recognise that there are many policy, attitudinal, and funding barriers to integration. Therefore, our aim is to leverage our collective strengths to decrease these barriers. We will do this through an increased focus on advocacy, the development of integration metrics, and the publishing of programme guidance.

This webinar is for anyone who is interested in learning more about BabyWASH and considering either implementing the approach or getting involved in the Coalition. Find out more at http://www.wvi.org/babywash.
