WASH Technical Overview

Access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and proper hygiene practices are not only fundamental human rights, but also critical for human health and well-being. Poor WASH conditions lead to the spread of waterborne diseases, such as diarrhea and cholera, which can have devastating consequences on communities, particularly in low-income countries. With far-reaching impacts on education, gender equality and economic growth, investment in WASH infrastructure is essential.

The Corus International family of organizations is committed to addressing WASH around the world. Our WASH programming employs a public health approach to WASH in emergencies, as well as sustainable water resource management, animal management and community WASH mobilization for improved sanitation.

Corus brings together IMA World Health and Lutheran World Relief to integrate WASH interventions into livelihoods projects as well as into broader health systems strengthening initiatives. Our approach is multi-sectoral and works to combine the resources and capacities of WASH and health sector authorities with the private sector to plan, finance and deliver integrated WASH outcomes through markets.
