Disability : making CLTS fully inclusive

This note provides guidance on dealing with the particular needs of the disabled in community-led total sanitation (CLTS). People affected tend not to be present at triggering, to lack voice in the community, to have their needs overlooked, and may even be hidden by their families. This note outlines the reality of the experiences of disabled people, the varied nature of their needs and how they can be met. It includes practical recommendations for people engaged in CLTS to make the different phases and processes of CLTS more inclusive. The note draws on findings from action research in two on-going water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programmes in Uganda and Zambia.
