Improving maternal and neonatal health through better access to WASH services in health care facilities in Mali

Since 2019, with the intervention of IRC Mali, six HCFs (rural maternal centres) in the communes of Nossombougou, Ouolodo and Tioribougou have gained access to basic water services. This represents 60% of all HCFs. IRC and its partners have also generated a political commitment at the local level to improve access to WASH services in HCFs. The communes have established a local and central water and sanitation service allowing them to report any WASH-related problems and for the regular monitoring of failures and/or progresses.

IRC Mali works with World Vision, UNICEF, the National Coalition of the International Campaign for Water and Sanitation (CN-CIEPA/WASH), WaterAid, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS), the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and the Swedish Postcode Foundation.

This fact sheet gives an overview of the progress achieved and future activities.

Abstract

Since 2019, with the intervention of IRC Mali, six HCFs (rural maternal centres) in the communes of Nossombougou, Ouolodo and Tioribougou have gained access to basic water services. This represents 60% of all HCFs. IRC and its partners have also generated a political commitment at the local level to improve access to WASH services in HCFs. The communes have established a local and central water and sanitation service allowing them to report any WASH-related problems and for the regular monitoring of failures and/or progresses.

IRC Mali works with World Vision, UNICEF, the National Coalition of the International Campaign for Water and Sanitation (CN-CIEPA/WASH), WaterAid, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS), the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and the Swedish Postcode Foundation.
