The study was designed to assess the field performance and acceptability of the SATO pan. This learning note identifies key lessons and strategies to improve sanitation product and service delivery in the region by the project and key stakeholders.

The following learning questions were used to guide survey design and analysis:

  • Is the SATO pan being properly and safely installed and well maintained?
  • What are the consumer perceptions and opinions on use of the SATO pan?
  • What type of sales approach was adopted and what was the role of key stakeholders in the process?
  • What are the resulting opportunities, gaps and challenges for the project?
  • What are the key learnings for improvement of sanitation marketing initiatives in the region?

USAID TRANSFORM WASH sets out to improve water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) outcomes in Ethiopia by increasing access to and sustained use of a wide spectrum of affordable WASH products and services, with a focus on sanitation. It does so by transforming the market for low-cost, high quality WASH products and services: stimulating demand at community level, strengthening supply chains, and building the enabling environment for a vibrant private market.

USAID TRANSFORM WASH is a USAID-funded project implemented by PSI in collaboration with SNV, Plan International, and IRC. The consortium is working closely with government agencies including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Electricity, the National WASH Coordination Office and regional governments.
