SHORT COURSE IN SUSTAINABLE WATER AND SANITATION HYGIENE (SWSH)
Rationale for the Course: In order to maximize the health and social advantages of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) initiatives, this course’s goal is to help students grasp the concepts and practices that should guide such efforts. This course is designed for people who want to comprehend the fundamentals of interventions that promote water, sanitation, and hygiene for public health in low-income settings.
The future of WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) activities is bright given that the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals maintain focus on the need for water, sanitation, and hygiene for everyone, all the time. The path to achieving this global goal, however, necessitates new viewpoints. This new way of thinking mandates cooperation among all WASH actors (governments, corporate sectors, civil society, and academia) in order to ensure that sustainable WASH is achieved for everyone, everywhere. The MSU SWSH short course was developed in response to new ideas and the needs of WASH professionals, who need to be aware of contemporary business trends in order to deliver high-quality, long-lasting services. This platform is anticipated to provide frequent information updates regarding industry practice and policy, as well as comply with international standards. MSU frequently works with businesses to give timely, applicable, and firmly grounded in revolutionary research instruction. We work with the business community to make sure the course material is current and meets employer standards.
