The purpose of the School Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Plus Community Impact (SWASH+) project was to answer the question “What is the impact of a school-based water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) intervention on pupil absence, helminth infection, and diarrhea?” However, this project also focused on how to sustain and scale school WASH interventions. Specifically, SWASH+ aimed to develop and test a scalable model for school WASH, and to influence the Kenyan government to adopt proven interventions. Findings gathered over the course of the multi-year project show that lack of sustainability in school WASH interventions can strongly limit impact. Four SWASH+ staff reflected on their impressions of the project’s evolution with regard to sustainability in three areas: research, advocacy, and management and coordination. [authors abstract]
