The HCWM Activity will also implement an innovation program in 12 selected high volume health facilities to improve HCWM practices at facility level in accordance with Ministry of Health (MoH), National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) and World Health Organization (WHO) regulations and guidance. The innovation program will support the 12 selected health facilities listed under Section 4(4) of this Program Description for year 1, to become models of excellence for HCWM practices, which shall be emulated by the rest of the health facilities during the life of the project. In the 12 model health facilities, the Recipient will will propose specific activities in furtherance of this objective.
