Benin Programme Overview

With a focus on sustainable and equitable sanitation and hygiene, the GSF-supported PAPHyR programme aims to improve health and living conditions for disadvantaged rural communities. The programme directly implements Benin’s national sanitation and hygiene strategy. Covering 27 communes in four departments (regions), the programme complements other WASH initiatives, aligns with Benin’s decentralized system, and collaborates closely with the Ministry of Health. While commune local governments serve as official Implementing Partners, they delegate responsibilities to civil society organizations, which are known as delegated implementing partners.
