I am very impressed that defences of PhD theses are being streamed live and plan to attend this one. I wonder if questions from the floor (worldwide!) might even be taken? (probably not) The title of this thesis is a little bit misleading. It says "faecal sludge" but it also deals in quite some detail with […]

While on a mission in Bangladesh I visited a tea stall where I saw a lot of men getting their daily cup of tea. 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.

Local health workers in Nepal are performing in village plays to promote men’s hygiene.
