SNV and IRC have been active in Bhutan in the Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All project, a capacity building approach, supporting local government to lead and accelerate progress towards district-wide sanitation coverage with a focus on institutional sustainability and learning. Work revolves around a number of specific components one of which is hygiene behaviour change communication. Currently a learning event, organised by SNV, IRC and the Ministry of Health, on this topic is underway in Paro, Bhutan. Apart from this activity, IRC is also involved in a study, which attempts to correlate changes in behaviour and the costs invested by the Bhutan government to bring about this change in Samtse district. This study will be conducted for the next two years. The results of this study will provide information to the government on what practices are worth replicating in other districts.
