On 19 November 2009 in Hanoi

On 19 November 2009 in Hanoi, the project of Water Supply, Sanitation, Hygiene Promotion and Health in (SANIVAT Project) under the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE) organized a workshop on “Hygiene in Ethnic Minority People in Lao Cai Province: Current Situations and Future Hygiene Promotion”. The aim of the workshop was to present the main findings from the project field studies in relation to hygiene and hygiene promotion in the context of the rural water supply and sanitation (RWSS) program, as well as to obtain feedbacks and recommendations for their on-going and future field studies. All field research activities of SANIVAT have been taking take place in Lao Cai province, which is one of the 9 pilot provinces under the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation (RWSS) - National Target Program II (2006-2010).

The workshop was attended by representatives from different Vietnamese academic and research institutions including NIHE, the National Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health, National Institute of Nutrition, Hanoi Medical University and Hanoi School of Public Health,  as well as from national/international organizations and NGOs working in the WATSAN sector in Vietnam, such as the RWSS Standing Office at Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, RWSS Partnership, the World Bank, WHO, Embassy of Denmark, PATH, Plan International, Red Cross, SNV, CWS, UCOPEP and others. The participants were highly interested in multi-disciplinary field studies presented by SANIVAT researchers, ranging from a qualitative study of hygiene practice and perceptions in ethnic minority villages in Lao Cai (with a focus on hand washing and child excreta management) to hygiene perception and latrine use among school children in the same area. The focus was also put on the studies on microbiological quality of the water and foods of the households included in the RWSS program supported by the RWSS-NTP II and other donors in the local areas. A number of implications/recommendations were also proposed on how to improve hygiene promotion and IEC target in the community and school contexts, including awareness raising on the importance of hygiene, safe water/foods, infectious diseases, and child nutrition. In addition, each promotion program should be tailored by age, ethnicity, and gender. The presentations triggered a lot of fruitful discussions surrounding the relating to the study designs, implementation and findings. This has largely contributed to the finalizations of SANIVAT research papers/reports as well as the promotion of experience sharing and lesson learnt in WATSAN sector in .
