IRC launched the newest WASH Systems Academy course on the building blocks of the WASH system on Monday, December 9th.

As with the previous basic course, this course is intended for sector professionals. It delves deeper into the systems strengthening approach and explores each of the building blocks in further detail. In addition to 11 content-rich sessions, the course features many vibrant illustrations of the WASH system and its components, new animations, case studies and podcasts. All materials can be downloaded and can stand alone to be included in presentations or workshops.

You can also now assess and reflect on how the building blocks function in your own context and familiarise yourself with tools to strengthen systems. And of course, everything is free and open to all.
