WASH support for reopening of schools in Indonesia

Tue, 15 Dec 2020 / UNICEF


In July 2020, the Government of Indonesia released a Joint Decree signed by four Ministries mandating the availability of clean toilets, handwashing facilities with running water and soap or sanitizers, and disinfection services as a minimum requirement for healthy and safe reopening of primary and secondary schools. Following the release of this decree, Safe Schools Protocols were developed as part of the broader country COVID-19 response strategy to establish the minimum standards for ensuring children’s safety in schools.
