Join this webinar on Thursday, July 20, 2:00-3:30 PM ET, to explore the latest data about the preparedness and response efforts for people experiencing homelessness during water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)-related emergencies. Hear from local jurisdictions that have successfully updated emergency plans to address this population and learn about focus group findings, tools, and resources to support this work.
People experiencing homelessness often have limited access to sanitation facilities and face barriers to engaging in hygiene behaviors. This places individuals and families experiencing homelessness at a higher risk for WASH-related health emergencies, such as outbreaks of shigellosis and hepatitis A. Additionally, certain WASH-related emergencies, such as natural disasters, may lead to the destruction and/or closure of facilities, creating additional barriers to accessing sanitation and hygiene services.
