Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS into Water, Hygiene and Environmental Sanitation Programmes:  An International Capacity Building Workshop Nairobi, Kenya 14-18 July 2008


Many development institutions have done very little to understand the contextual impacts of HIV and AIDS on Water, Hygiene and Environmental Sanitation programmes and have not integrated programmatic actions to halt the spread of HIV and AIDS, and mitigate its impacts. Similarly, AIDS service organisations have not analysed the role of safe water, sanitation and Hygiene in fostering quality care, prevention, treatment, impact mitigation services at individual, house hold and community. The Course focuses on strengthening understanding, generating, documenting and sharing lessons to influence policies and programmes of public and private organizations.
