As part of the 2021 Stockholm World Water Week, the Fit for School team is pleased to invite you our two sessions on the topics “Cleanliness at your fingertips: Calculate WASH costs with your phone” and on “Approaching One Health through Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools”.
“Cleanliness at your fingertips: Calculate WASH costs with your phone” will be taking place on the 24 August 2021 at 10:00 CET (15:00 Jakarta/Phnom Penh/Vientiane; 16:00 Manila) and will feature a guide to the Operation and Maintenance costing app “Calculate the Cost” developed by GIZ, including a test scenario to experience using the app, followed by a discussion on adaptations to focus on WASH in Healthcare facilities and other potential settings.

Our “Approaching One Health through Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools” session will be taking place on the 27 August 2021 at 7:00 CET (12:00 Jakarta/Phnom Penh/Vientiane; 13:00 Manila) and will feature a panel discussion with key experts from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the World Health Organization (WHO), GIZ and the University of the Philippines.
The objective of the session is to highlight how the One Health concept can be operationalized through school-based interventions, since schools offer a unique and concrete entry point to address public health concerns through existing government structures with a strong focus on prevention and behavior change.
