HYGIENE PROMOTION IN RELATION TO COMMUNITY CONSENSUS BUILDING FOR SUSTAINABLE HEALTH

I am Lemi Peter Joseph a WASH hygiene promoter for JEN running the Village Transformation Programme (VTP) project in the three villages, Balamuke, Yembe, and Papara respectively of Abegi sub-boma, Wotogo boma, Otogo Payam of Yei River County, where JEN is currently working in.

Sustainable health is the result of consensus building, a common belief exists that, Sanitation and Personal hygiene practices remain together, therefore, sustainable health of the community is not made at the council table or by treaties but only in hygiene and sanitation promotion.

Hygiene and sanitation promotion is a health promotion whose goal is to transform and change behavior associated with poor hygiene and sanitation practices. The ultimate purpose is to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with WASH related diseases and improves the health care status of the three villages of Abegi sub-boma, however, this sustainable health promotion transformation in Abegi has attracted 99 Voluntary Community hygiene promoters and three hygiene clubs in their respective villages comprises of 45 members in general. Therefore, with these JEN is doing great for the vigilant transformation in these villages.
