The Institute of Population, Health and Development (PHAD) has succeeded in persuading USAID to fund for PHAD’s Local Works project in Ha Nam and Thanh Hoa provinces.
The project aims to strengthen access to clean water to improve community health in four poor and remote communes of Ha Nam and Thanh Hoa provinces by strengthening local capacity, enhancing cooperation among the local authorities, as well as applying science and technology to sustainably address local water pollution and domestic water. The project targets to develop sustainable solutions involving participation of several actors including government agencies, local authorities, private sectors, enterprises, local non-governmental organizations, local civil society organizations, and the citizens to support and contribute to national goals’ implementation as stated by the Prime Minister in the National Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Action Plan towards 2030.
During five years of implementation of Local Works project focusing on “Strengthening access to safe water and hygienic latrines to improve community health of four poor communities in Ha Nam and Thanh Hoa provinces”, PHAD aims to provide a community-based model to support and promote community health, particularly in reducing the incidence of water-borne diseases of the poor and remote communities of Vietnam. It is expected that more than 20,000 individuals of the implementing communes will benefit from the project.
