Voices from the field: WASH SDG has a podcast now
WASH SDG has a podcast now! In WASH SDG voices from the field, we'll get in touch with water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) experts working in several countries in Africa and Asia.
In the WASH SDG podcast
We'll talk about different themes related to WASH, and may include topics as varied as water governance, leaving open defecation behind or menstrual health and hygiene.
WASH SDG Programme
The WASH SDG Programme aims to improve access to safe drinking water for at least 4.5 million people and clean toilets for 2 million people before the end of 2022.
Menstrual Health in Times of Covid-19
In the first episode, Menstrual Health in Times of COVID-19, the podcast discusses how Covid-19 impacted the way women in Africa and Asia manage their period. Normally, schools are the main source of reliable information and a safe place.
Due to Covid-19, schools were closed, houses were packed and privacy was scarce, to not even mention the stress that comes with a pandemic. Together with two experts in the field, Andrew Samuel Kiiza (Plan International Uganda) and Pema Lhaki (NFCC, Nepal), we discussed the situation, the work that the government does and the next steps to be taken.
