"We need to be practical, we need to think at scale, and we need to think in context." Clara Rudholm of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) kicked off the workshop with these important guidelines. Later in the day, the workshop had the honor to host Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, the Uganda Minister of Health, who expressed his strong support, and made it clear that the Ugandan government eagerly awaits the findings and recommendations of the workshop. Recognizing each of the countries present, Dr. Rugunda compelled the participants to share their findings worldwide, particularly with policy makers like him.
