Descriptif
The initiative from the Italian NGOs LVIA and CCM aims at supporting the local authorities in increasing the access to safe water and sanitation services and promoting health-seeking behaviors among the communities of the three sub-counties of Isiolo County (Isiolo, Merti and Garbatulla). The WASH related activities include mainly water sources rehabilitation, including the strengthening and creation of existing/new Wruas (Water Resources Users Associations), rain water harvesting systems and latrines construction in selected schools and health facilities. Health services are strengthened through the provision of drugs, equipment, trainings and continuous technical assistance to the staff of 15 primary health care facilities. Sensitization activities address both specific targets (i.e. students, mothers, community leaders, etc.) and the community at large, through the organization of campaigns and dedicated events. The proposal draws inspiration from pivotal policy and strategy documents elaborated by the GoK, such as the Kenya Water Act (2002), the Vision 2030, the NWSS (2012-15), the CIDP (2013-17), the WRMA SP (2012-17), Kenya Health Policies (2012-2030) and KEP (Kenya Essential Package for Health). The project is in line with the Guidelines for Italian Cooperation (2013-2015), focusing on some cross cutting issues : environment protection, MCH promotion, women empowerment, vulnerable group protection (under 5, pregnant and lactating women).
