The “Improved Water, Sanitation and Hygiene” (IWASH) program goal was to make measurable, community-focused improvements in water supply, sanitation and hygiene in Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties in Liberia. Building on existing program frameworks, IWASH also included Ebola-related hygiene messaging in the final year of implementation. IWASH sought to:
- Increase access to water supply, sanitation, hygiene education and household-level hygiene products.
- Raise community knowledge and use of potable water supply options and storage technologies, sanitation facilities and hygiene practices.
- Develop an enabling environment for WASH at the national, county, district and community levels.
This case study focusses on the program’s employment of Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), which promotes transformative, community-driven behaviour change to eliminate open defecation. Global Communities developed an innovative “CLTS+” approach by tailoring the proven CLTS methodology to community-specific needs in order to create a more sustainable and scalable program model for some of Liberia’s most vulnerable communities.
