TI and DRI report on our research into WASH in Healthcare facilities.
TI is working with the Desert Research on building a toolbox to improve sustainability of WASH in Healthcare facilities. Poor WASH affects quality of patient case and safety of staff, patients, and families. Our research started with a landscape review (and appendix) of existing literature.
