38 p.

This Policy & Standards for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) in Schools represents the commitment of the Education Department to sustainably improve the students’ overall health and wellbeing towards achieving a quality education within a child friendly school environment. The standards are developed to create uniform minimum conditions for WaSH in schools and a healthy environment for school children, teachers and other staff. The standards deal specifically with water supply (water quality, quantity and access), sanitation (quality and access), hygiene promotion and menstrual hygiene management. They are designed for use in low-cost settings, where simple and affordable measures can significantly improve hygiene and health.
