The primary aim of the GWC COVID Resource page is to centralise WASH specific resources for the COVID response. The GWC is primarily collecting key country resources from National WASH Humanitarian Coordination Platforms as well as key global technical guidance documents, links to trainings and webinars to facilitate access for WASH staff and practitioners. The GWC also has latest news on WASH & COVID-19, access the latest edition below and subscribe here. The GWC and the Covid-19 Hygiene Hub have recently released a coordination and information management learning brief. Note that the repositories below will be updated until end of 2021, beyond that, the web page will remain as an archive and will be integrated in our resource center.

We always welcome receiving examples of COVID-19 / WASH resource guidance documents, training initiatives, webinars generated by your partner organisation to be added to GWC website or in the next newsletter, please contact
