Suaahara Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Posters -Version 2

Suaahara was a five year (2011-2016) project funded by USAID aimed to improve the nutritional status of women and children in 41 districts of Nepal. The project focused on improving health and nutrition behaviors at the household level through promotion of Essential Nutrition and Hygiene Actions (EN/HA), particularly Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition (MIYCN), and addressing other determinants of under-nutrition, such as availability of and access to food, hygiene, quality of health care, child spacing and socio-cultural factors including gender and marginalization.

Suaahara was implemented by a consortium of partner organizations led by Save the Children.

The SBCC strategy established an internal quality materials review and production system to ensure that all partners in the consortium had mutually reinforcing, quality materials developed, pretested, produced and disseminated to the end user. Suaahara developed these water, sanitation and hygiene posters as training aids

They include:

  • Hand washing at critical times saves from diarrhea, typhoid etc.
  • Keep clean and safe starting from water resources to protect from diarrhea and typhoid
  • Keep tube well and its surroundings clean and safe to protect from diarrhea and typhoid
  • For healthy and pride, keep your home yard neat, clean and well managed.
  • Let’s make kitchen neat, clean and well managed to protect from diarrhea and typhoid
  • Give attention to personal hygiene and be healthy
  • Drink only purified Water adopting any water purification method

These posters were produced and distributed through training and local NGO partners disseminated in all public places in Suaahara implementing districts throughout the project period with reprinting of the materials as demanded from the field.
