MOPTI [ACTED News] – The health and sanitation situation in Mali is worrying, as health services are waning in the country, which has the third worst rates in terms of under-5 child mortality. ACTED conducted water, sanitation and hygiene activities in six community health centres in the Mopti Circle. Now, each one of those centres has access to safe water, latrines, showers and handwashing facilities, as well as waste collection units. The intervention will help improve hygiene and sanitation conditions in the health centres, to continue waterborne disease prevention and to break the cycle of malnutrition. This project was supported by UNICEF.
