Rural Sanitation and Hygiene

In Uganda, sanitation is considered a household issue. The situation is worse off for rural areas where all sanitation facilities are not connected to a central sewer system but  managed privately at household level. Besides people lack knowledge on appropriate latrine technologies for the respective geological situations. The pit latrine is the most known option which is adopted everywhere. 

Open Defecation is a common practice in the rural areas which organizations are trying to fight using software approaches such as Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS). In a process to stimulate demand for improved sanitation options, Community Leaders and Village Health Teams (VHTs) are trained as trainers in Community Led Total Sanitation with objectives of enabling them;
  • acquire knowledge and thorough understanding of CLTS as an approach
  • gain and develop CLTS facilitation skills
  • develop action plans for introducing and implementing CLTS in areas of operation
