Technical Assistance to the Revitalization of UKS and WASH in Schools Initiatives of the Ministry of Education and Culture
A. Background

The Regional Fit for School Program is based on the principles of the award-winning Fit for School Approach, which has been developed in the Philippines with support of the German International Cooperation. The approach focuses on intersectoral collaboration between health, education, water and sanitation sector and makes use of the existing structures of the education sector to institutionalize evidence based preventive measures like hand-washing with soap and tooth-brushing as part of daily routines in public elementary schools. It also includes the improvement of water and sanitation facilities, specifically group hand-washing stations and thus support schools to become health-promoting, learning, and living environments. The Program has recently entered its second phase, starting from December 2015 until November 2018. While the activities during the 1st program phase (2011-2015) focused on the development of implementation models and templates, technical assistance in the 2nd phase will support government-led scale-up of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in schools in Indonesia, Cambodia, Lao PDR, and the Philippines.

The Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture (MOEC) has expressed its intention to revitalize its School Health Initiative (UKS) through better inter-ministerial coordination an enhanced incentive system for performance.  Furthermore, it is interested in promoting the school community manual developed during the first phase of the Fit for School Program as a standard national reference for implementing school health programs.
