Where it has been introduced, CLTS has been integrated with other development initiatives. Besides ending open defecation, the focus is on a more comprehensive package which includes wastewater management, solid waste disposal, overall hygiene and more. The approach has also been modified in some countries to ‘School-led Total Sanitation (SLTS)’, whereby schools are the prime drivers in achieving ODF status. This has widened the spread of CLTS and its impact, both among adults and children. Plan, Water Aid and UNICEF have become important disseminators and champions of CLTS. Today, it is present in many countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. In sub-Saharan Africa, it has taken root in 28 countries and gained the support of decision makers and professionals, who have recognised it as a successful, cost-effective approach and have issued a declaration to urge governments to take more decisive steps to ensure ODF environments among local communities.

- Re: Some changes to the forum categories - by: F H Mughal November 27, 2014Dear Elisabeth, Just a quick response.... Where would the following fit in? Human right to sanitation Policy Innovation in sanitation Political commitments (like political willingness) Monitoring and evaluation Instead of mindsets and attitudes, can we rephrase it as attitudes and behaviour change? Mindset seems a narrow term. These headings should be broad […]
- Re: Some changes to the forum categories - by: KimAndersson November 27, 2014Dear Elisabeth and all, I very much like the set of new categories and think that they are relevant and appropriate. Great work!! Still I have some questions regarding the ‘mind sets and attitudes’ category. First of all, it seems that when you enter the category, it says ‘Mind sets and attitudes, CLTS’, which indicate that CLTS is the major topic under this […]

- Re: About chlorine solution preparation - by: JKMakowka November 27, 2014Sometimes I think we need a proper WASH message board again, as questions like this are quite far off the normal spectrum for SuSanA... I assume the background of your question is preparing (medical) cleaning solutions from locally available bleach powder? Putting "preparing bleach solution" into google gave me the attached document as the first hi […]
