To mark this year World Water Day, WaterAid has put together an advocacy priority themed “Healthy Start” which aims to get the water and sanitation sector working collaboratively with the health sector nationally and internationally to harness the power of WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) to improve the health and nutrition of newborn babies and children.

While addressing the participants and guests at World Water Day Stakeholder Workshop in Abuja, today, 19th March, Dr Ojo, Country Director, WaterAid Nigeria said “our healthy start vision is to galvanize action locally and nationally, including across ministries, and generate a strong commitment regionally and globally to get WASH firmly embedded in health policies and practice so that undernutrition, preventable childhood diseases and newborn deaths are dramatically reduced”
