Challenge

Health indicators show that Ethiopia has serious problems with healthcare and disease prevention. Water and sanitation-related diseases, particularly diarrhea, are among the top three causes of death in the country after malaria and HIV/AIDS. Only 12% of the rural population has access to safe drinking water and 7% to basic sanitation. Rural communities are the main beneficiaries of this program. The total number of beneficiaries is 117,450.

Solution

The main project activities are construction of machine-drilled and hand-dug wells, spring capping structures, ventilated and improved latrines and management of water for good hygiene and sanitation.

Long-Term Impact

This project reduces the incidence of water- and sanitation-related diseases. Through a sustainable and safe water, sanitation and hygiene project, we improve the lives of entire communities.

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
