First ever global guidelines on #sanitation and health by World Health Organization (WHO)

Copied from Sandec tweet:

First ever global guidelines on #sanitation and health by World Health Organization (WHO) will drive momentum to end the sanitation crisis, improve #globalhealth and meet the #SDGs. Be sure to look at Chapter 3 on safe sanitation. #Sandec’s #Compendium, the #FSM book and FSM MOOC were important references for the guidelines. bit.ly/2NlBFRV

Re: First ever global guidelines on sanitation and health by World Health Organization (WHO)

Yes, this is surely a very important new document which will hopefully be quite impactful!

Could anyone who was at its launch at the recent UNC conference in the US tell us more about it? Perhaps share the accompanying presentation and tell us how it was received?

Interesting that once again the BMGF was involved in funding them (good on them!):

WHO gratefully acknowledges the financial support provided by the Department for International Development,
United Kingdom, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the development of these guidelines


The project that this is related to is here in the SuSanA project database (I've been trying to get more details):
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/projects/database/details/272

We have also added it to the SuSanA library here:
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...library/details/3447

WHO (2018). Guidelines on Sanitation and Health. Geneva: World Health Organization; 2018. Licence: CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 IGO. ISBN 978-92-4-151470-5

(as a side note: due to the licence including the NC letters ( = non commercial) it cannot be utilised directly on Wikipedia which is a pity).

Re: First ever global guidelines on sanitation and health by World Health Organization (WHO)

The session at UNC was very well received! It included an overview of the Guidelines on Sanitation and Health and a fun quiz as well as commentary from Bruce Gordon, WHO WASH coordinator and Jan Willem Rosenboom from BMGF.

If you'd like to see it yourself, tune in for a webinar on World Toilet Day (Mon Nov 19) hosted by UN-Water and SuSanA followed by a 2-4 week thematic discussion in the SuSanA forum.

The webinar will be presented by Bruce and me from WHO and moderated with help from ILO. In the SuSanA forum Sophie Boisson, also from WHO, will go deeper into hot topics within the guidelines and answer your questions with some of the lead authors.

Links to the webinar and forum to follow.......

Re: First ever global guidelines on sanitation and health by World Health Organization (WHO)

Don’t forget to join the webinar on Monday 19 Nov! If you are unable to join, you will be able to access a recording on the platform. We will meet on the forum shortly after the webinar where we will open discussions on the guidelines on the following themes:

1. Evidence on sanitation and health
2. Safe toilets access and use
3. Safe sanitation chain
4. Health sector role in sanitation

Over the next three weeks, you will get a chance to learn more about the key recommendations, guidance and technical resources of the guidelines, and get an opportunity to provide feedback and discuss key issues.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, ideas and experiences!
