At the completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Identify the impacts of poor WASH access and services.
2. Differentiate between WASH development and disaster interventions that have been shown to be effective at reducing morbidity and mortality and those that have not.
3. Explain the relationship between WASH technologies, behavioral change and the enabling environment and how the three must work in tandem to result in sustained improvements.
4. Outline possible disaster and development program design elements and appropriate monitoring and evaluation methods.
