WASH in COVID19 recovery in war zones?:Women  at the  frontline in the fight /prevention against waterborne diseases and COVID19

Despite the small number of COVID 19 cases in the DRC, the population women and children in the rural areas in the war zones are still the most affected by the side effects of pandemics in the DRC.

In the most remote rural areas such as Kadjuchu and islands, pandemics such as Cholera, Malaria, Dysentery, Typhus, Ebola are still far to be eradicated. Given the lack or the weak infrastructures for health care and the absence of the local government, the rural populations, women and children, in particular, are the most negatively affected by the pandemic of COVID19.

The long-distance to reach drink water facilities, the lack of hygiene and sanitation facilities expose this target group to more vulnerability in form of pandemic diseases, insecurity and food insecurity.
