WSSCC 2017 Highlights


By the end of 2017, 14,600 new communities across the GSF targeted programme areas in 12 countries became nationally certified as Open Defecation Free (ODF). This represents 5 million people living in newly certified ODF environments. Ensuring quality-built latrines and access to handwashing facilities remained a priority for WSSCC. Moreover, over 3 million people had gained access to improved toilets as per the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply (JMP) definition of basic and limited sanitation facilities within the GSF targeted areas. GSF-supported programmes continued to collaborate and partner with education-related stakeholders in the programmed areas, guaranteeing the presence of single-sex sanitation and hygiene facilities in approximately 574 schools.
