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.

- Has anyone tried to develop a DALY for sanitation? - by: kengelly March 23, 2017Hi everyone, PSI is big on measuring our health impact, as many of you may know. We do a lot of work in reproductive health, family planning etc. and calculate the likely impact one an individual's health if they adopt a certain product or method. But of course, that's super, super complicated for sanitation. (And really, how much does having a toi […]

- Re: HDPE septic tank apply to the Rural sewage treatment in China and South east Asia - by: Dana March 23, 2017Hi Juliana, Thanks for sharing information on HDPE septic tanks. I'm based in Ghana and here we have access to plastic septic tanks, 3000 and 6000 liters. They are roto-molded. As you mention the cost is high, approximately twice the cost of a tank make using ferro-cement. How do you recommend producing HDPE tanks to lower the production cost?
