Attending the 2015 Water and Health Conference

From October 26-30, the 2015 Water and Health Conference takes place at Chapel Hill in the United States. The conference, organised by The Water Institute at UNC, considers drinking water supply, sanitation, hygiene and water resources in both the developing and developed worlds with a strong public health emphasis. Simavi is present to share our expertise and experience.


Simavi empowers communities to claim their WASH rights and implement sustainable, long-term services that can stop preventable diseases and deaths and boost social and economic development. We know from ninety years experience that giving people a voice and advocating for WASH rights is a vital step in improving basic health for all.

Our very own Nanneke Nix and Maaike Schouten are joining the conference. They will present our social accountability approach in three case studies and our multi-track and non subisidy approach to achieve healthy behaviour in Indonesia.
