Sanitation for Millions is a global multi-donor programme to improve access to safe sanitation and hygiene with a focus on vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. More than one million people in 14 countries have already benefitted directly from Sanitation for Millions’ measures that include the construction of sanitary facilities, capacity development to ensure adequate use, operation and maintenance, behaviour change measures towards safe hygiene as well as improved wastewater management.
Sanitation for Millions was commissioned in 2016 by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as lead donor and is co-financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Water Unite, the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Inter-American Development Bank. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH implements the programme in close cooperation with local partners.
In Uganda, programme activities have started in 2017 and centred on schools and healthcare facilities (HCFs) as entry points. The activities have been broadened to encompass financing mechanisms and community-wide sanitation with a focus on household on-site sanitation (OSS) and faecal sludge management (FSM). Sanitation for Millions targets improvementsin the sanitation and hygiene situation in various towns in Uganda. The programme operates in Kampala, the capital city, as well as in smaller towns in the North of the country. Interventions are implemented in direct partnership with the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Apac Municipal Council (MC), the Town Councils of Aduku and Ibuje and the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE), with support from the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) and the Ministry of Health (MoH).
