School facilities assessment : baseline to end of year two comparisons : SWASH-plus : sustaining and scaling school water, sanitation, and hygiene plus community impacts

Data from a baseline and two follow-up assessments are presented to examine trends in school WASH conditions over time following implementation of the SWASH+ project. Schools in all intervention groups are continuing to regularly provide drinking water; however, present measurable water chlorination was lower than expected in program schools (around 40%), as was reported provision of soap. School latrine ratios and conditions have improved, although improvements are also seen in control schools. Continued engagement with schools is needed to understand barriers to sustained water treatment and soap provision. Additional research to identify effective latrine maintenance regimes is also necessary. [authors abstract]

This is a SWASH+ -output.

Abstract

Data from a baseline and two follow-up assessments are presented to examine trends in school WASH conditions over time following implementation of the SWASH+ project. Schools in all intervention groups are continuing to regularly provide drinking water; however, present measurable water chlorination was lower than expected in program schools (around 40%), as was reported provision of soap. School latrine ratios and conditions have improved, although improvements are also seen in control schools. Continued engagement with schools is needed to understand barriers to sustained water treatment and soap provision. Additional research to identify effective latrine maintenance regimes is also necessary. [authors abstract]
