Public Health and WaSH


Aiming to promoting the healthy lives and wellbeing of wider communities and populations, public health deals with life-threatening transferable illness, infectious diseases, and injuries. Among its diverse fields, WaSH (three inter-linked areas—water, sanitation and hygiene) is at the core of sustainable development and critical to the survival of people. Global access to safe water, adequate sanitation, and proper knowledge about hygiene can reduce illness and death from diseases, leading to improved health, poverty reduction, and socio-economic development.

Acknowledging the importance of issues related to public health, especially the WASH, DM WATCH, with its practice area “Public Health and WaSH”, strives to promote healthcare equity, quality and accessibility regardless of age, ethnicity and gender by conducting researches, collaborating with partners implementing relevant programs and, recommending policies.
