Welcome to the BabyWASH Coalition

What is the BabyWASH Coalition?

The BabyWASH Coalition is a group of organisations focused on increasing integration between water sanitation and hygiene (WASH), early childhood development (ECD), nutrition, and maternal newborn and child health (MNCH) programming, policy-making and funding to improve child well-being in the first 1000 days. We recognise that there are many policy, attitudinal, and funding barriers to integration. Therefore, our aim is to leverage our collective strengths to break down these barriers and to make a strong case for the benefits and necessity of an integrated approach to achieving the SDGs. We will do this through an increased focus on advocacy, the development of integration metrics, and the suggestion of preferred practices for programmatic implementers.

The objectives of the BabyWASH coalition are well placed to support the current global development initiatives. We support the Every Woman Every Child global strategy by focusing on newborns, young children and their caretakers in an integrated way. We are a response to the Sustainable Development Goals’ call for more multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilise and share knowledge. We also contribute to the strategic objective of the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH) to increase understanding around inter-sector planning and action.
