Celebrating Gender Transformative Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Vietnam

In Vietnam, many women face challenges accessing WASH services and facilities; lack of funds and information, exclusion from decision-making, poorly designed facilities along with restrictive gender norms all create barriers.

To celebrate International Women's Day this year we are featuring the innovative the Women-Led Output Based Aid (WOBA) programme in Vietnam, which is overcoming these barriers by facilitating gender transformative WASH. Read the blog here. .

The blog is centred on a short video interview with Hanh Nguyen Hong (Regional Programme Director Vietnam, Loa and Cambodia, Thrive Networks/East Meets West). Hanh explains how this programme is effectively implemented through partnership with the Vietnam Women’s Union who have 17 million members across the country at all levels making them a fantastic mobilising force for both WASH and gender equality goals.
