The manual you are reading now is an update of the earlier, popular manual entitled Towards Better Programming: A manual on school sanitation and hygiene education, published by UNICEF and the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre in 1998. It contains many examples, most of which are drawn from a UNICEF-IRC pilot study for School Sanitation and Hygiene Education (SSHE) carried out in six countries (Burkina Faso, Colombia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Vietnam, and Zambia). This pilot programme took place from 1999-2003, with a post-intervention assessment in 2006. Other information and examples reflected in this updated manual are drawn from other UNICEF supported programmes, notably in Malawi and India.
This manual deals with school water, sanitation and hygiene education. It describes many of the elements needed for scaling up programmes for water, sanitation and hygiene in schools while ensuring quality and sustainability.
The manual is meant for government, UNICEF and other (I)NGO staff responsible for programming WASH in Schools.
