DIPLOMA IN WATER, HYGIENE AND SANITATION

Africa Institute for Project Management Studies (AIPMS) is pleased to announce a Diploma in Water, Hygiene and Sanitation. The course is offered through Distance Learning. The course starts on 1st of every month.
Course Overview:
According to the latest estimates of the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP), released in early 2013 (collected in 2011), 36 per cent of the world’s population – 2.5 billion people – lack improved sanitation facilities, and 768 million people still use unsafe drinking water sources. Inadequate access to safe water and sanitation services, coupled with poor hygiene practices, kills and sickens thousands of children every day, and leads to impoverishment and diminished opportunities for thousands more.**
The course provides an understanding of WASH in the context of wider public health challenges and illustrates the practical interventions necessary to deliver on health and wider development/emergency needs.
Course Objectives:
By the end of this course, a student assessed as competent against this qualification will be able to:
• Understand public health and appreciate the current and future disease burden in developing countries
• Correlate WASH and Environmental Health with Public Health (including nutrition) in the context of community development
• Understand the practicalities around community water supply, waste management (including drainage), and related environmental health issues for effective community hygiene promotion
