We, at Development Counterpart (DC), expressly advocate healthy strong populations as a prerequisite to sustainable development. The interwoven link of poverty and public health presses the need of access to safe water. A range of health risks are water-borne and provision of safe drinking water to all is an immediate challenge. Infrastructure development and improved governance in the health sector are also the pressing needs of the day. We believe that vulnerability can only be addressed by building problem solving skills within communities while coordinating for support of such community-led solutions. These goals are aligned with United Nations SDG 3 and SDG 6.
To advance health and WASH goals, DC will continue to:
We have successfully implemented projects in the thematic area of health and WASH all over Pakistan. These projects included provision of basic health services, capacity building of health workers, awareness drives on basic health education and family health, infrastructure development for improved sanitation, and provision of safe drinking water.
These projects were funded by GIZ, USAID, UNHCR, UNICEF, WHO, CIDA, EPA, CHIP, Qatar charity, save the children, Action Aid, TVO, SAP, National Aids Program, National Trust for Population Welfare, and Government of KPK.
