IRC is currently working to help around 75,000 people in Rangpur and Rajshahi in the Northern part of Bangladesh who are disabled to gain better access to sanitation. We are working with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) with a grant from ADRAS for research on access to sanitation for the disabled. The three-year project runs until 2016 in both Malawi and Bangladesh. IRC's focus in this project is on Bangladesh, where our work is linked to BRAC – Bangladesh's largest NGO that works in sanitation. IRC hopes to give a better insight into the prevalence of disability and on access to sanitation.
This poster is sharing some of the initial conclusions and lessons learned so far. The poster was developed as a contribution to the 2015 Water and Health Conference, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA. The poster is based on the joint work by Marielle Snel, Kristof Bostoen and Adam Biran (LSHTM).
