IOM will also rehabilitate 4 latrines in schools and health centres, install 150 mobile toilets, and promote safe hygiene and sanitation practices. For the collective response, IOM will train 60 enumerators to conduct multi-sectoral assessments using the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) methodology. In total, 121,000 persons - 65,000 of whom are internally displaced persons - including 24,500 women and 28,393 girls will be assisted.
