PHAST stands for Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation. It is an exciting and relatively new approach, based on an innovative set of participatory techniques. It has demonstrated its ability to promote hygienic behaviour, sanitation improvements, and community management of water and sanitation facilities. PHAST was carefully developed and tested in both urban and rural areas in four African countries: Botswana, Kenya, Uganda and Zimbabwe. The results of these tests indicate an unprecedented level of involvement by communities, the particular suitability of PHAST techniques to resource-poor settings, and remarkable success in terms of environmental and behavioural improvements.
