SNV conducted a campaign in Uganda which led up to World Toilet Day, which focused on addressing topics such as proper construction of handwashing stations, handwashing at five critical times, using handwashing triggering tools, and more. SNV also worked to upgrade handwashing stations.
At an event, the President of the Republic of Uganda urged all Ugandans to always wash their hands with soap. While commenting on the national sanitation coverage, HE. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni said that improving the national coverage should be the focus of all stakeholders in the country and because poor sanitation coverage impacts the economic transformation of the country.
In Uganda SNV have managed to combat HIV/AIDS, because of collective responsibility, and employs the same effort to fight unhygienic behaviors and bacterial infections, which are claiming many lives both in rural and urban areas because lacking handwashing with soap habits.
