This report includes findings on a range of handwashing indicators from a nationally representative population (covering both rural and urban communities) along with water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) indicators to provide baseline information for use in advocacy, planning and program monitoring. Field workers conducted face‐to‐face surveys, spot checks and structured observations to determine handwashing practices and facilities and collected data on other WASH practices (including menstrual hygiene management in schools and households), facilities and knowledge. Two‐stage stratified cluster sampling was used to select households. The nearest schools, restaurants/street food vendors, hospitals and Traditional Birth Attendants were enrolled
