NALA’s innovative and community-based solutions have led to a sustainable reduction in disease in project areas. Our model complements drug administration campaigns with a focus on promoting healthy behavior change, strengthening the capacity of the local community to improve public health, and increasing their access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). Recently, NALA has also provided support to the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) in promoting inter-sectoral coordination between the WASH and health sectors at the federal, regional, and local levels.
