Job Description


Diarrhoeal diseases are preventable, yet remain a leading cause of death among children under five in Nepal. Every year in Nepal, around 2,190 children under five lose their lives due to diarrhoea and many millions suffered severely. Further, outbreaks of cholera affect the country regularly. Diarrhoeal diseases are associated with malnutrition and may increase the risk of infectious diseases such as pneumonia. While major advances in treating diarrhoea have been made, diarrhoea prevention remains challenging due to failures to increase access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene practices in areas with high disease burden. Improving hygiene behaviours is therefore vital for the reduction of those preventable diseases in Nepal.

Child Health Division with the technical and financial support from WaterAid has developed a project: 'Hygiene Promotion through Routine Immunisation' in Nepal. The project is being piloted in four districts in Nepal. The aim of the pilot project is to demonstrate, with the view to expansion and scale-up, the promotion of safe hygiene practices through the routine immunisation programme in Nepal.

The major thrust of the project is behaviour change among mothers attending immunisation clinics with their under one year child, by training and enabling Female Community Health Volunteers (FCHVs) to facilitate mothers for positive behaviour change. Eventually, it is hoped that the intervention will contribute to reducing childhood morbidity and mortality. A hygiene promotion package has been finalised and endorsed by the Ministry of Health and Population and can now be implemented in the pilot districts. Prior to the project implementation in the districts, Master Training of Trainers (MTOT) will be organised to prepare a team of expert trainers, so that those who receive MTOT will take lead in coordinating and conducting training at district level.
