Managed By: Tajikistan
Initial Year: 2008
Final Year: 2009
USAID Contact: Laurel Fain
Alliance Location: Asia Regional
Program Objective: Save the Children (SC), through the proposed Personal Hygiene and Sanitation Education (PHASE) II program, aims to improve the health and nutrition behavior of enrolled primary school children. This program will build upon its existing PHASE program in Tajikistan and SCís broad experience implementing School Health and Nutrition (SHN) programs worldwide, using lessons learned and leveraging acquired knowledge and relationships. The current PHASE program is a two-year activity funded through GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), which will reach completion in February 2008. SC has secured additional funding from GSK to increase impact and to facilitate an environment conducive to the sustainability of the projectís objective beyond the life of donor funding. SC is hoping to leverage GSK funds with financial support from USAID (in a 2:1 leverage) to increase the reach and overall impact of this next stage of PHASE programming.
