Access to proper sanitation facilities is key to tackling human excreta related epidemics in developing regions. To achieve that, access to quality information on the sanitation sector is crucial in order to: identify key problem areas; and to optimize the use of available funds. Using national and regional socioeconomic data for five East African countries, this paper highlights the complexity of acquiring realistic sanitation information and provides a preliminary assessment of survey data reliability based on WHO/UNICEF data.
