FolderProject Overview

HIP partnered with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) to support the USAID-funded Healthy Communities and Municipalities Project, which helps families in Peru’s Amazonian regions to incorporate preventative health practices into their daily lives. HIP worked with MSH to develop simple, low-cost interventions to help improve the quality of household drinking water. This required developing simple point-of-use household water treatment options using inexpensive, locally available equipment and consumables in the absence of commercial water treatment products. This activity ended in 2008. HIP alos supporting Peru’s Alternative Pro-poor Sanitation Solutions in Peru Initiative coordinated by the World Bank Water and Sanitation Program, providing expertise in monitoring and evaluation, knowledge management, formative research, and technology options, with a focus on “sanitation as a business.” In addition, HIP has provided technical support for Peru’s Public Private Partnership for Hand Washing.
