The project is funded by the Australian government (DFAT) for the period of four years (2018 – 2022). The project aims to improve health, gender equality and social inclusion, and wellbeing of 200,000 people in three districts (Atsaphone, Champhone and Phalanxay) of Savannakhet Province by 2022 by equitably increasing access and use of safe sanitation and hygiene for all.
The project strengthens capacities of the provincial government and three districts through 4 interrelated and mutually reinforced components (i) inclusive WASH governance, (ii) sociall behaviour change communication (SBCC), (iii) sanitation demand creation (adapted to the local context) and (iv) sanitation and hygiene supply chains and marketing. The process brings together multiple government departments at provincial and district with a pool of expertise, knowledge and experience.
The advisors will join a team based in Vientiane and Savannakhet , and will work closely with Savannakhet Provincial Health Department; provincial Namsaat and 03 selected district governments to strengthen the capacity of the district teams on planning, budgeting, implementation, steering and monitoring of sanitation and hygiene services, aligned with district planning and implementation. The project places a strong focus on mainstreaming Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) and climate change resilience in the design and implementation.
The project works in close collaboration with key stakeholders to develop and pre-test sustainable and practical models and approaches to achieve universal sanitation coverage in the project districts that can subsequently be replicated by other districts within Savannakhet as well as other provinces in Laos
