Inclusive WASH Forums

Over 9 months in 2012/13 this website hosted a series of live discussion forums and webinars across five sessions. These forums are now closed but the discussion has been preserved here in archived form.

This session will introduce the concepts of inclusion and equity in the WASH sector and give participants a step by step introduction to using the inclusivewash.org.au website’s interactive features. Participants will be shown how to use simple tools that relate equity outcomes to all of their WASH work.

Participants will be introduced to fundamental principles and practical tools in a fun and interactive way.

People with a disability represent the largest socially excluded group globally and most live without access to basic sanitary services, which can exacerbate impairments and poverty. This session will review the WASH needs of people living with disabilities, discuss processes to identify communities’ access needs and introduce the adaptive technologies available for WASH projects.

Accessible water and sanitation and good hygiene practices are essential for the treatment and wellbeing of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and their carers. Yet PLWHA often face stigma and isolation within their own community, limiting their access to basic water and sanitary services. This session will provide participants with an introduction to the integration of WASH practices into HIV-care and vice versa.

This session will build on the previous four learning sessions, transferring technology, process and policy lessons to other groups who face exclusion from WASH. The facilitator will encourage participants to think about how they can design projects to address the WASH needs of those marginalised due to race, religion, caste, ethnic minority, age, employment etc.
