Within a broader health program, WASH teams of World Vision in Vanuatu are currently supporting long-term projects with about 15
rural communities in the Provinces of Sanma, Tafea and Pentecost in Vanuatu. The projects are carried out in partnership with the Vanuatu Government’s Rural Water Supply Program and the Provincial Environmental Health Units. The goals of the projects are to improve health through sustainable water and sanitation facilities and improved health practices. To ensure community ownership (and therefore sustainability) World Vision Vanuatu uses the Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) approach to promote safe hygiene and sanitation and community management of water and sanitation facilities. The underlying idea is that no lasting change to people’s behaviour will occur unless they understand and believe in the health benefits. [authors abstract]
