ONWARD is the Oudomxay Nutrition and WASH Advancement for Rural Development which is being implemented in the Houn District of the Oudomxay Province.

This project is an integrated community development program focused on improving nutrition for 7,500 household members, including 3,560 women, particularly women of reproductive age and children under 5.

Oudomxay Province ranks as one of the lowest in Laos in regards to proper nutrition and access to clean water and sanitation.  In an effort to overcome these dilemmas, the ONWARD project provided Training of Trainers support to the District Health Office staff so that they can adequately conduct nutrition awareness sessions in partnership with ADRA personnel to the targeted community participants.
