What are the options of aligning WASH and nutrition programmes at the community level?
This is a question that I've been asked in the field so I wanted to share it with everyone on KnowledgePoint
1) By building an integrated strategy, produced in a collaborative way and based on a joint inter-sectoral analysis, planning and strategic thinking. For example, ACF Nutrition Security Policy; an overarching long-term positioning that encompasses both preventive and reactive interventions in the nutrition, WASH, mental health and care practices, food security and health nexus. 2) By ensuring that a strategy for one sector includes important cross-cutting issues and specific objectives of another sector and identifies opportunities for integration. It means a proactive approach with WASH, mental health and care practices, health, nutrition and food security partners to ensure integration of nutrition objectives in all WASH projects from the outsets.
