The global WASH in Schools (WinS) Network, through the support of Fit for School being implemented by GIZ and funded by BMZ, was a headline sponsor of the 2021 UNC Water and Health Conference that was held virtually on October 4 to 8, 2021. 

The annual UNC Water and Health Conference serves as a venue where policymakers, practitioners and researchers gather to review the evidence, interrogate the science and improve old and develop new approaches to expanding WaSH access. Aligned with the continuing commitment to improving public health by achieving universal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) services that are safe, affordable and sustainable – particularly for the most marginalized.

The WinS Network offered a lunch session on the topic “Updates and lessons learned on WASH in Schools and safe school reopening during COVID-19”.  The session focused on safe school reopening, key global guidance documents, as well as good practices to improve WinS and the school reopening process from East Asia and the Pacific region.
