Re: WaterAid School WASH research in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Nepal

Dear Elisabeth,

well done for extracting this from your pile of work and integrating it so nicely in the Wiki article. I think it is very fine. Perhaps you could term this subsection 'Enabling environment for WASH in schools'. Citations are fine. The content of this subsection is pretty much in all four case study reports, and if I recall well, it is captured explicitly as part of the general recommendations. This is kind of general statement, and I would not refer to specific pages.

Not a bad idea to add the link to the DoE of the Philippines although I hope that there won't be the perception that this particular government body exemplifies the inertia and slowness to reform mentioned. As for the photos, let me check what I can find and confirm with WaterAid that they are ok with using them in this article.

more to come then,

Bests and thanks again,
Jacques

Re: WaterAid School WASH research in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Nepal

Hi Jacques,

I share your concern about Department of Education in the Philippines possibly being seen in a negative light if I provide that example in that way. I have now changed it so that DoE in the Philippines comes across much more positively, by adding this example:

Group handwashing [edit | edit source]
Supervised daily group handwashing in schools can be an effective strategy for building good hygiene habits, with the potential to lead to positive health and education outcomes for children. This has for example been implemented in the "Essential Health Care Program" by the Department of Education in the Philippines.[25] Deworming twice a year, supplemented with washing hands daily with soap, brushing teeth daily with fluoride, is at the core of this national program. It has also been successfully implemented in Indonesia.[26][27]

I hope WaterAid will allow you to make your photos available in open access mode. Fingers crossed!

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: WaterAid School WASH research in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Nepal

I just wanted to "close the loop" here: The photos that Jacques had taken for that report about WASH in schools in four countries (Nepal, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh) have now been uploaded to the SuSanA flickr account and are available for anyone to use and appreciate here:
www.flickr.com/photos/gtzecosan/collections/72157626092939057/

From there, they have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (the image repository of Wikipedia), and I have included some to illustrate WASH in schools:

It's a good example of making results from a study available in different communication channels and different forms to reach more people.

Regards,
Elisabeth
