Max Foundation shares experience at WEDC

Proud of our Portfolio Manager Suzan van der Wilt who presented during the 40th WEDC International Conference. This conference takes place at Loughborough University, United Kingdom, this week and provides continued professional development for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector professionals.

Suzan presented about the approach of Max Foundation on fighting stunting in Bangladesh. In Bangladesh 36% of all under-five children are stunted, which means being too short for one’s age. Max Foundation’s integrated approach – combining WASH, Nutrition and SRH – is an effective way of controlling growth retardation since there is a strong link between stunting and sanitation & hygiene.
