Sanitation and Hygiene Applied Research for Equity (SHARE) consortium

United Kingdom • London

 

Established in 2010 with funding from the UK Department for International Development, the Sanitation and Hygiene Applied Research for Equity (SHARE) consortium seeks to contribute to achieving universal access to effective, sustainable and equitable sanitation and hygiene by generating, synthesising and translating evidence to improve policy and practice worldwide. Since our inception, we have conducted research across a range of sanitation and hygiene-related issues to address national sector needs in the countries which we work, focussing particularly on the broad thematic areas of: equity, health, markets and urban sanitation. In 2015, SHARE commenced a second phase of research and refocused to four new themes: complementary food hygiene, nutrition, urban sanitation and vaccines. Our activities are now concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa, specifically: Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia.
