Since 2010, the Freetown WASH Consortium – consisting of Oxfam, Action Against Hunger, Save the Children, Concern Worldwide and GOAL – has worked to decrease mortality and morbidity stemming from preventable WASH-related causes in Sierra Leone’s capital. Now in its third phase, the DFID-funded consortium is undertaking a range of integrated activities to improve access to drinkable water and adequate sanitation services, promote safe hygiene behaviours, build the capacity of duty-bearers in risk reduction and contingency planning, and lobby for pro-poor investment in WASH services.
This document outlines how the programme is implemented in partnership with government ministries, local authorities and the President’s Delivery Team, as well as how the programme adapted to the Ebola outbreak.
