WASH services do not exist in isolation. There is a complex system of variables which we have broken down in 9 manageable parts or building blocks. Together they form the foundation of WASH service delivery.

This animation has been developed as part of the WASH Systems Academy. The Academy will help you understand the WASH systems strengthening approach:

  • What is it?
  • How and why was it developed?
  • How to start applying it.

If you are at the start of your career or are a senior WASH expert that wants to understand what a systems strengthening approach entails and how you can integrate it in your work, this free online course is for you. The WASH Systems Academy will be available from September 2019.

The WASH Systems Academy is an initiative of IRC. For more information see:
