A staggering 5,000 schools were damaged or destroyed by the disaster – but even before that, sanitation in schools was often very poor, putting children at risk of waterborne diseases.
From 2010 and 2011, UNICEF responded with WASH improvements to 198 schools, including new latrines and hand washing stands. With partners, UNICEF has also reached schools with chlorine tabs, posters about cholera prevention and soap.
UNICEF is working with the Haitian government to create at a set of minimum standards for good sanitation and clean water in schools.
