There is still a long way to go to reach universal sanitation in Nepal and many barriers to over come. These include the long political resistance to seeing sanitation — as opposed to water — as any kind of national priority. But for those who are skeptical, there is now evidence that placing the problem in the hands of schools and communities and enabling them to take the lead, can have a transformative effect on the health and morale of hundreds of thousands of people. [authors abstract]
