BRAC has an extensive WASH progamme which aims to bring sustainable water and sanitation services to over 37 million people in Bangladesh.

The IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre has been supporting BRAC’s WASH programmes with technical assistance since 2007. The organization has recently been contracted to support the 2nd phase of BRAC’s WASH Programme with monitoring, action-research and knowledge-sharing for the next five years.

BRAC will be supporting IRC’s contributions to Sanitation Updates, with news and information regarding sanitation initiatives around the world.
