- Re: Health information on Wikipedia is going from strength to strength - can we do the same for sanitation (together with others)? - by: WikiDocJames September 17, 2014So why write on Wikipedia? I have one answer, because it is what the world is reading. I had never heard of Akvopedia, Ecompendium or IWA Water Wiki before reading this discussion.

Tea stalls are a common phenomenon in Bangladesh, it is a place where people gather not just for tea, but to hang out and talk freely about whatever is important to them. Male field workers in the BRAC WASH programme have started visiting these stalls to discuss sanitation and hygiene practices.
Forum theatres are one of WaterAid’s new approaches of improving hygiene in Bangladesh by focusing on men. See below photos of a pilot show in Jogdol bazaar, Magura in west Bangladesh.
