This is an improved way of collecting WASH data since 2005 and for not only WASH projects but projects that has WASH components. We have already loaded up in the system all your data from 2005 to 2014 and now we are offering brief training for you to use the system online.
The advantages:

  • Quick, simple, easy to use ‘in real time’ data collection (both historic and new data)
  • Ability to manage your own data easily.
  • Ability to print out your own data for reports and marketing from the portal
  • Do data analysis

The roll-out is currently taking place through online and in-person workshops. Please find the written guidelines here (including things to consider and explanations of terms) and the visual guidelines for HNS and PNS. If you have any questions or your National Society does not have an account, please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Bach
