Meet up with PSI at the UNC 2019 WASH Conference!

Starting October 7, the PSI team will join hundreds of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) professionals in Chapel Hill, NC for the 2019 Water and Health Conference: Where Science Meets Policy. We’ll be collaborating with several partners to share learning and raise awareness on topics such as creating profitable sanitation businesses, developing affordable and desirable toilets through human-centered design, increasing toilet usage through behavior change communication, and making sanitation markets more accessible to urban and peri-urban poor.

The PSI sanitation experts that will join panels and presentations at the UNC Water and Health Conference include:

  • Monte Achenbach, Director of WASH Programs and Chief of Party for USAID Transform WASH, PSI Ethiopia
  • Julia Bressler, Senior Program Manager, Francophone/Lusophone Africa, PSI
