This study shows for the first time that a significant number of people living with unimproved household sanitation imposes a large financial and economic loss on the Lao PDR economy, not only to private individuals but also to the public and commercial sectors. The results of this study support the need for greater investment in water and sanitation infrastructure and in promoting improved hygiene practices. The results will be of interest to national policy makers, donor agencies, local authorities, as well as mass organization such as women’s or youth groups.
