During the World Water Week 2016 in Stockholm, Simavi, IRC, Akvo and Wetlands International will launch the Watershed programme. In this strategic partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we have joined hands to increase the sustainability of water, sanitation and hygiene services.
This year Simavi began a new Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) programme in Bangladesh: Ritu. The goal is to improve menstrual hygiene management for girls at school, by raising awareness of menstruation, increasing access to sanitary pads, supporting the construction of MHM-friendly toilets, and addressing taboos surrounding the issue.
Roel Blesgraaf is Simavi’s Public Affairs Officer WASH. At the end of this month he will attend World Water Week in Stockholm (august 28- september 2), the most important water issues event in the year. Prior to his visit, we talked with him about the right to water and sanitation and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Our goal is to structurally improve the basic health of 10 million people by 2020.
Over this time we’ve built up an in-depth knowledge of what - and who - it takes to successfully implement WASH and SRHR programmes and how to keep producing positive and sustainable results.Meet us here
