    1. Vacancy: WASH Field Coordinator

    Position Code: WASH/MERU/0015

    Team / Programme: Programmes

    Location: Meru

    Grade: 3

    Post Type: National (12 Months)

    Role Purpose:

    The Field Coordinator will be responsible for overseeing day-to-day intervention operations, to include; management of two field trainers, stipend payments for healthcare workers, logistics support, data collection and intervention monitoring and quality control.

    The Field Coordinator will ensure that local government and healthcare staff are introduced to the study and agree to participate.

    The Field Coordinator will manage the identification of participating clinics and health extension staff and the training of those staff.

    Following training, the Field Coordinator will monitor healthcare workers’ delivery of the intervention while also providing financial and logistical support to participating health workers.

    The field coordinator will supervise two WASH Officers (both based in Igembe).

    Scope of Role: The intervention area is Igembe North and Igembe Central sub-counties in Meru County, Kenya.

    This is a rural area about 250 km northeast of Nairobi, Kenya.

    The intervention will take place at all government funded (public) antenatal care facilities in these areas.

    Travel distances and associated costs may guide our selection of clinics to include in this intervention.

    The study will include the following arms:

  • Clinic staff and health extension workers receive no intervention (control group)
  • Intervention arm 1 - Clinic staff will be encouraged to use the handwashing promotion tools/materials on mothers when they come to the clinic for care
  • Intervention arm 2 – Clinic staff and associated community health extension workers will be encouraged to use the handwashing promotion tools/materials when mothers come to the clinic for care and during ANC visits to the home
  • Intervention arm 3 – Clinic staff and associated community health extension workers will be encouraged to use the handwashing promotion tools/materials when mothers come to the clinic for care and during ANC visits to the home. During the ANC visit, households will receive a handwashing station and soap for the home.
  • The project will meet with the Supervising Administrator for each antenatal care facility to describe the intervention and to request participation in the study.
  • In addition, the project will request the Administrator to allow antenatal care clinic staff to be trained to promote handwashing using a pre-specified set of tools, and to encourage staff to carry out the handwashing promotion to pregnant women.

    Background:

    Handwashing is difficult for mothers of newborns to carry out, as indicated by several qualitative studies undertaken in Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Kenya (http://www.mchip.net/node/3115).

    In a rural area in western Kenya and an urban area in Nairobi, mothers of newborns reported barriers to handwashing such as her perception of being too busy due to lack of assistance for housework and childcare, the lack of soap and water where she needs them (especially at night), a disabling environment created when decision makers of a household (e.g. husbands) do not prioritize handwashing, and a lack of information about how to wash hands to prevent illness in the neonate from health care workers (Kaimenyi, Mulindi et al 2014).

    Facilitators and motivators for handwashing included perceived vulnerability of newborn to infection and a benefit of handwashing to prevent illness (http://www.mchip.net/node/2986).

    A study among mothers of children less than five years old in Kenya found habit and a desire for cleanliness were associated with handwashing practices, but it is unclear how well these drivers may influence maternal handwashing behavior during the neonatal period (Aunger, Schmidt et al. 2010).

    Prior studies have demonstrated that, among mothers and other primary caregivers of young children, handwashing at times of possible pathogen transmission needs improvement.

    A 2010 publication by Aunger and colleagues reports that caregivers were observed to wash hands with soap at 31% of toileting events, and 13% of events of serving food to or feeding a child.

    (Aunger, Schmidt et al. 2010) Fixed locations for handwashing with soap are uncommon in many Kenyan homes, thereby potentially decreasing the convenience of handwashing behavior. (Kamm, Feikin et al. 2014)

    Development of a scalable, cost-effective intervention to promote handwashing with soap among mothers and caregivers of newborns has the potential to decrease neonatal mortality in Kenya.

    Addressing key motivators and barriers identified by Kenyan mothers and families can guide development of an acceptable, effective handwashing promotion intervention.
