Safe Hand Hygiene

2022.unknown.GIZ.DonacionToallasLavables.consentNO (29)

In Colombia, only 18% have access to safe sanitation services. At the same time, the country hosts over nine million refugees and internally displaced persons, and about 40% of the population is living below the poverty line. Sanitation for Millions addresses these vulnerable groups – and will take action to improve the situation.

After more than two years of implementation in Colombia in the framework of the GEF CReW+ project, Sanitation for Millions initiated a separate intervention in October 2022. The concrete lines of intervention are still being defined.

The primary local partner is the Ministry of Environment and sustainable development.
