The ONEWASH PLUS programme (2014-2018), led by UNICEF with financial support from DFID, aims to improve WASH services provision and increase sustainable use of sanitation and hygiene facilities, services and products at household and community level. To achieve this goal, the project introduces and tests innovations in integrated WASH service delivery approaches in small towns and surrounding villages, including the construction of new infrastructure and development of management capacity and other institutional arrangements. The project is focused in eight towns in four different regions in Ethiopia: Abomsa, Sheno and Welenchiti in Oromia; Maksegnit in Amhara; Adishihu and Wukro in Tigray; Kebridehar and Jijiga in Somali. Jijiga, where the project interventions focus on improving solid waste management, was added to the project at a later stage, with a baseline conducted in February 2016, and therefore it is not considered in this mid-line report.

In order to assess the extent to which the programme has contributed to achieving sustainable, equitable and resilient WASH services and its desired impact, improved household health and well-being, a quasi-randomised control trial is undertaken, which includes a baseline survey (late 2014), and midline survey (mid-2016) with an endline survey planned in 2018. This report presents the methodology and results of the midline survey.

Abstract

The ONEWASH PLUS programme (2014-2018), led by UNICEF with financial support from DFID, aims to improve WASH services provision and increase sustainable use of sanitation and hygiene facilities, services and products at household and community level. To achieve this goal, the project introduces and tests innovations in integrated WASH service delivery approaches in small towns and surrounding villages, including the construction of new infrastructure and development of management capacity and other institutional arrangements. The project is focused in eight towns in four different regions in Ethiopia: Abomsa, Sheno and Welenchiti in Oromia; Maksegnit in Amhara; Adishihu and Wukro in Tigray; Kebridehar and Jijiga in Somali. Jijiga, where the project interventions focus on improving solid waste management, was added to the project at a later stage, with a baseline conducted in February 2016, and therefore it is not considered in this mid-line report.

In order to assess the extent to which the programme has contributed to achieving sustainable, equitable and resilient WASH services and its desired impact, improved household health and well-being, a quasi-randomised control trial is undertaken, which includes a baseline survey (late 2014), and midline survey (mid-2016) with an endline survey planned in 2018. This report presents the methodology and results of the midline survey.
