We are profoundly sad to announce the death of our beloved PAC Partner, Dr. Eva Friedlander on 24 December 2015. Eva worked for many years on women's rights and disability issues. She lived in New York and represented the International Women's Anthropology Conference at the United Nations. Family, friends, and colleagues all mourn her passing.




PAC Partner, Dr. Suzanne Hanchett, has been contributing to blogs at the CLTS website on the many changes in the water-sanitation-hygiene sector. During the week of 10-13 January Suzanne attended sessions at the sixth South Asia Sanitation Conference (SACOSAN-VI) in Dhaka, Bangladesh.  She made two presentations, available   You can read her SACOSAN-VI blogs by clicking on the link to the CLTS website.
