Health & Hygiene

Most of the diseases in Honduras are associated with the use and management of drinking water, improper disposal of sewage, improper handling of solid waste, and the practice of bad hygiene. One of ADEC’s goals is to improve poor hygiene habits by creating a healthy environment in schools and homes through fun and easy activities (cleaning campaigns in schools and homes, health and hygiene training, etc.). One strategy for short-term sustainability is the creation and training of health committees responsible for the monitoring and implement of these hygienic practices as well as increasing the involvement of the parents/teachers/children in programs organized by the ADEC technicians.
