Hand Washing Practice in ASEH Project Area – A Study for Impact Monitoring

This study examines the status and benefits of hand washing with cleaning agents at five critical times as part of the Advancing Sustainable Environmental Health (ASEH) project. It was the third part of a longitudinal study of a project in rural and urban areas of Bangladesh with an earlier baseline (2004) and mid-term impact study (2007). It was designed using an iterative Cluster Sampling Technique. The study reveals that knowledge about critical hand washing times increased significantly in both rural and urban areas at all five critical hand washing times, except for two critical times related to children in rural areas. Of respondents in rural and urban areas, 27% and 63% respectively have knowledge about all five critical times. Hand washing at these critical times increased in rural and urban areas, with the exception of hand washing before feeding young children in rural areas. Notably, 27% of people in rural and 32% of people in urban areas reported washing their hands properly at all five critical times. This paper was presented at the Hygiene Practitioners Workshop, Dhaka, Bangladesh, February 2010.

WSSCC Strategic Plan 2017-2020

WSSCC General
WSSCC’s new Strategic Plan will guide the organization over the next four years. It identifies the results WSSCC will achieve, the issues it will work on, and where it will work. The Strategy also presents how WSSCC will deploy its effective mix of tools, instruments, knowledge, and human and financial resources to make a meaningful and sustainable impact on the lives of millions people who lack sanitation and hygiene, especially those in the most vulnerable situations. Because WSSCC’s work is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that aim to transform the world by 2030, this Strategy is the first in a sequence of plans that later will guide WSSCC’s work from 2021-25 and 2026-30, respectively.Le nouveau Plan Stratégique du WSSCC guidera l'organisation au cours des quatre prochaines années. Il identifie les résultats que le WSSCC atteindra, les enjeux sur lesquels il travaillera et où il fonctionnera. La Stratégie présente également comment le WSSCC déploiera sa panoplie efficace d'outils, d'instruments, de connaissances et de ressources humaines et financières pour avoir un impact significatif et durable sur la vie de millions de personnes qui manquent d'assainissement et d'hygiène, en particulier dans les situations les plus vulnérables. Parce que le travail du WSSCC est guidé par les objectifs de développement durable (ODD) qui visent à transformer le monde d'ici à 2030, cette Stratégie est la première d'une série de plans qui guideront plus tard le travail du WSSCC de 2021-25 et 2026-30 respectivement.

Discussion Synthesis: Private sector engagement in sanitation and hygiene – Exploring roles across t...

The WSSCC Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries (WSSCC CoP) and the global Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) came together in late September 2015 to hold a joint three-week thematic discussion on sanitation and hygiene behaviour change programming and sustainability. It was the first time the two networks had come together to host an online collaborative learning event. Both platforms have over 5,000 members each working in WASH and other related sectors. Hence, this thematic discussion was an opportunity to bring together these two global communities to share learning and to explore links between research and practice on behaviour change. The focus on sanitation as a business and sanitation entrepreneurs has mushroomed in recent years with numerous organisations (donors, research institutes and think tanks, NGOs, and impact investor / philanthropist foundations, amongst others) exploring the topic. This summary blends the discussions online with a sampling of the numerous resources available on the topic.

Global Sanitation Fund Progress Report 2014

Global Sanitation Fund
In this report, you will find the main results for the Global Sanitation Fund as of 31 December 2014. Also presented are cumulative numerical results in a dashboard, for the GSF as a whole and for each country that has reached the implementation phase, and descriptions of the various results indicators. The country profiles provide more detail on the national GSF-supported activities. Other sections present the GSF’s key developments in 2014, monitoring and evaluation aspects, and a full listing of active Sub-grantees. Through its regular reporting, WSSCC desires to give a clear impression of the current and planned impact of its GSF. WSSCC encourages support for the GSF and it also welcomes critical analysis of the GSF’s key results, learning and sharing aspects, and approaches used to raise awareness and generate demand for improved and sustainable sanitation and hygiene practices.Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement - Rapport d’avancement 2013 - En 2014, le Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement (GSF) a soutenu des actions nationales dans 13 pays visant à étendre l’accès à des installations sanitaires améliorées et à encourager l’adoption de comportements hygiéniques. Au course de l’année, ses programmes ont permis d’augmenter considérablement le nombre de personnes vivant dans des zones exemptes de défécation a l’air libre, et d’intensifier la pratique du lavage des mains et l’utilisation de toilettes améliorées.
