Lack of access to Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) services disproportionately affects men and women. This is recognized by examining social construct of gender norms which has infiltrated into the lives of every individual with the benefits and rights they enjoy. An evidence-based study was carried out in the slums of Ahmedabad to understand differential access and benefits sought by men and women to safe WATSAN services. The study reveals that there is a necessity for considering gender needs in policy formulation and decision making to have an equitable impact of WATSAN services.

Lack of access to Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) services disproportionately affects men and women. This is recognized by examining social construct of gender norms which has infiltrated into the lives of every individual with the benefits and rights they enjoy. An evidence-based study was carried out in the slums of Ahmedabad to understand differential access and benefits sought by men and women to safe WATSAN services. The study reveals that there is a necessity for considering gender needs in policy formulation and decision making to have an equitable impact of WATSAN services.
