The National Level Learning Alliance Platform (NLLAP) hosted WaterAid Ghana at its 50th edition under the Healthy Start project to highlight WASH and health linkages and to present the Healthy Start project to stakeholders.
NLLAP 50 took place on Thursday, 19th March, 2015 at the Cocnut Grove Hotel in Accra on the theme, “WASH and Health Lnkages: Healthy Start in Ghana“. The platform hosted WaterAid Ghana under a four year advocacy project called Healthy Start. A team of experts from WaterAid and partners shared on a range of issues relating to WASH-Health linkages - global and local efforts; the 2014 cholera outbreak and lessons. The Healthy Start project was also introduced to stakeholders in a thought-provoking fashion.
The main objective of NLLAP 50 was to present to stakeholders the focus of the Healthy Start programme – achieving improved child health and nutrition through advocacy for WASH integration into health policy and delivery at all levels; and also to jointly discuss the way forward in ensuring that healthcare facilities meet basic standards of clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
