Emory University conducted a mid-term evaluation between May and July 2008 that included assessments of school facilities and households. The main questions were whether or not households associated with intervention schools were exposed to more WASH messages than those of control schools, what factors made people more likely to use WaterGuard (WG), the water treatment solution used by the project — including socio-economics, demographics, geography, social connectedness, and messaging — and the differences between intervention and control schools in WASH awareness and behaviors. [authors abstract]

This is a one-page summary based on the 2008 report, Diffusion of water and hygiene messages through SWASH+ schools in western Kenya: Preliminary midterm data analysis, by the Center for Global Safe Water at Emory University.

This is a SWASH+ -output.
