The SSH4A programme aims to achieve safe and sustainable sanitation for all. Addressing disparities between social groups and advancing gender equality are critical steps in achieving this goal. This work on gender and social inclusion is part of the SNV/IRC Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All Programme, which has been operating since 2008. The programme aims to improve the health and quality of life in 5 countries in Asia (Bhutan, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal and Vietnam) through enhanced access to improved sanitation and hygiene practices. This brief explores the programme's approach to promoting gender equality and social inclusion and shares lessons drawn from experience to address these issues at scale.
