In 2019, IRC selected Niger as a new focus country. We have committed ourselves for five years, with the aim of close collaboration until 2030 if the security situation allows.

Together with two consultants we will work in Makalondi and Torodi in the region of Tillabéri. Our focus is on improving services in schools and health care facilities as an entry point for achieving SDG 6. 

Findings in Niger show that most health care facilities have no soap available at their handwashing facilities. Often, there are no handwashing facilities at all. In Torodi district, less than half of the health centres had toilets on the premises or nearby. We are also working on strengthening the organisational, technical and administrative capacity of municipalities to be able to effectively and sustainably address these challenges.
