Environmental health risk assessment (EHRA)

This factsheet describes the Environmental Health Risk Assessment (EHRA) developed by the Urban Sanitation Development Program (USDP) in Indonesia. EHRAs are carried out in (a representative) sample of all urban neighbourhoods on the household conditions and practices in 5 sanitation sub-sectors. The data from the EHRA are the basis for compiling the IRS or Index Sanitasi Risiko. The IRS shows how risky conditions and practices are distributed across the city locations for each sanitation sub-sector. The distribution helps the Pokja Sanitasi, the Working Group with representatives of all sanitation sub-sector institutions, to plan the city sanitation strategy and to formulate priority interventions in high risk neighbourhoods.

Abstract

This factsheet describes the Environmental Health Risk Assessment (EHRA) developed by the Urban Sanitation Development Program (USDP) in Indonesia. EHRAs are carried out in (a representative) sample of all urban neighbourhoods on the household conditions and practices in 5 sanitation sub-sectors. The data from the EHRA are the basis for compiling the IRS or Index Sanitasi Risiko. The IRS shows how risky conditions and practices are distributed across the city locations for each sanitation sub-sector. The distribution helps the Pokja Sanitasi, the Working Group with representatives of all sanitation sub-sector institutions, to plan the city sanitation strategy and to formulate priority interventions in high risk neighbourhoods.
