Thought Leadership in WASH

Dr. Orlando Hernandez, Senior Director for IBTCI's Global Health Practice, is a thought leader in WASH as demonstrated by his role as co-chair of the Joint Monitoring Program when the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) were developed. Dr. Hernandez co-authored an analysis of handwashing behaviors in 51 countries, published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. The objective of this analysis is to describe global handwashing patterns using two proxy indicators for handwashing behavior from 51 Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) surveys conducted in 2010–2013: availability of soap anywhere in the dwelling and access to a handwashing place with soap and water.
This paper was recently cited by the World Health Organization and UNICEF in an article reflecting on the process of establishing SDG baselines and the methods used to generate national, regional and global estimates for the new household WASH indicators.
