DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-21] 

Dialogue promotion incorporates community’s needs in policy making process. Integrating population in risk management and public health policies, through a confidence relationship is essential. A routine surveillance, mainly by drinking water monitoring, generates information that can become public, enabling community engagement and empowerment, especially young people, who can be agents for a better WASH practices. Such practices contribute to individual and collective behavior change. Hence, this session will debate the importance of empowering the people as well as the need for transparency of governmental and non-governmental actions, contributing for public health and related policies effectiveness.
