The Global Sanitation Fund in Ethiopia

The GSF-supported programme is known as the Ethiopia Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (E-SHIP). The programme is managed by Ethiopia’s Federal Ministry of Health, as the Executing Agency, and has recorded strong results since the start of the programme. By June 2014, the programme had recorded a cumulative total of over 1.6 million people living in open defecation free environments. In addition, more than 3,600 villages had been triggered through behaviour change activities and over 1.7 million people gained access to handwashing facilities since the start of the programme.
