Presentation: Importance of WASH for Maternal and Child Health (MNCH) - Online training

This presentation was used to deliver a webinar that synthesizes the most recent research, to discuss the impact of WASH related diseases on pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, and children under the age of five. We will describe how diarrheal disease leads to malnutrition and other related nutrient deficiencies in mothers and children. Finally, we will discuss potential WASH interventions to improve the health of mothers and children.
