Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) can cause significant disabilities and even death. These diseases affect more than 1.6 billion people worldwide, primarily among the most vulnerable communities. Access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services plays a critical role in the prevention, management, and care of NTDs.

Overview: This course is specifically designed for governments, development agencies, civil society partners, and others working with them. It aims to help establish or strengthen collaboration between WASH and NTD actors. The course is structured around three modules. We will first examine the role of WASH in the prevention, management, and care of NTDs. Then you will learn about the opportunities for collaboration between the WASH and NTD sectors and gain insights from existing program experiences. Each module includes a simple self-test to help you recall key information. And at the end of the course, you will receive a certificate.
Duration: Approximately 2 hours.
