This report presents a brief overview of the Uganda sanitation sector and a presentation of key findings from the trip made by a team of consultants from the Hygiene Improvement Project to Uganda. It provides multiple options - both short- and long-term - for building the various components of an effective sanitation marketing programme in Uganda. The goal of the HIP consultant team visit to Uganda was to identify activities needed to develop a stand-alone sanitation marketing programme - including activities such as formative research, best practice options for rural latrine design, a consumer guide on technology options, a supply-chain study, training and certification of masons and artisans, and a road-map for district level sanitation marketing. In addition, the team sought to provide a set of options for those interested in making targeted contributions to enhance other organisations’ ongoing programmes - including sanitation marketing advocacy materials and outreach activities, assistance for the Community Sanitation Center, a public-private partnership for cement supply, messages for the WASH drama series, and technical assistance to micro-credit initiatives. Estimates of the resource requirements needed to implement these activities are presented in the recommendation section.
