Since the beginnings of its work, IIRD has identified Health and Sanitation as a serious area to be addressed in order to improve living standards of rural people in India. IIRD aims to create awareness and develop the necessary infrastructure to provide people with healthy and sanitary living conditions.
We pursue this goal by providing training sessions and implementing projects and awareness campaigns on sewage treatment, waste and water management, water related diseases prevention and treatment, personal hygienic habits, etc.
Besides acting as an implementing agency, IIRD has been playing an important role as a nodal and consulting agency for governmental and non-governmental institutions by approaching, supporting and engaging the various stakeholders.
By providing access to a safe and adequate water supply and sanitation; training in the improvement of hygiene habits; and training the community to maintain its improved water supply and sanitation facilities through community participation, IIRD has been able to make that much required difference in reduction of water-borne diseases in its areas of intervention.
To increase rural people’s access to health services and sanitation providing the infrastructure, know-how and information needed, by creating infrastructure, raising awareness, developing sense of responsibility, building capacity and engaging the stakeholders.
