Poor sanitation and hygiene is a cross-cutting health concern in most rural villages and urban cities in Cameroon. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene remains a major challenge in Cameroon because supply in potable water in urban and rural areas does not meet the need for the country’s ever growing population. Poor sanitation leads to diarrheal diseases, which are responsible for 17% of all deaths of children under five (World Health Organization). Poor personal and household hygiene can lead to trachoma, increased rate of infections, and a number of other diseases. A home with standing water can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and increase malaria rates not just for that family, but for the neighbors as well.
We are looking for candidates with a background in health, sustainable waters management, social studies and relevant field.
