Enabling factors

The program works on strengthening intersectoral working groups, setting clear roles and coordination mechanisms at all levels, integration of public health topics in education sector policies and structures, and provides platforms for international learning exchange.

Lessons learned

  • A school health or WASH in schools policy serves as a solid basis for clarifying roles with other sectors and to coordinate collaboration. 
  • A policy framework supports alignment and harmonization of development partner support. 
  • Regular exchange and joint decision-making through e.g. a technical working group facilitates moving the topic foward and keeping all relevant actors involved.
