IIRR provides integrated health education through two programs

Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH)

Our WASH program is designed to help members of the community increase adoption of good hygiene practices. We support the construction of water, sanitation, and hygiene facilities.

Community Health

The Community Health program advocates, builds awareness, and educates on sexual reproductive health & rights and environment.

Highlights of our work

IIRR’s health programs are relatively new and are often incorporated into other programs such as our Integrated School Nutrition Programs and educational programs. Over the years, we have provided a community health education program on the negative impacts of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) to 16,196 people in Kenya. We have also helped a school build more sanitation stations.
