Although there is substantial attention to women’s roles, this critical review points at the areas where gender equity, rather than women’s involvement, is still required. The Kampala Declaration on Sanitation of 1992 is a participatorily developed guideline for districts, but has only a separate section on representation of women, youths and persons with disabilities, involving these categories in sanitation promotion and recruiting and deploying women field workers. The emphasis is on numbers rather than equality of influence, work and benefits. The National Sanitation Guidelines only refer to gender equity for the survival rate of girls in schools and reducing malarial morbidity of pregnant mothers. Other subjects addressed are institutions, implementation, hygiene promotion, financing and impacts. A list of key questions and recommendations should help further development
