x, 12 p.

The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in schools’ strategic partners working with the Ministry of General Education have identified several challenges that hinder the attainment of adequate access to improved sanitation and safe water at schools at a required scale. Some of the challenges identified are: inadequate sanitation facilities, unspecified standards and guidelines for school WASH, and low priority for school WASH in general resulting in limited funding. The proposed standards are designed to improve the school WASH situation and contribute to the attainment of SDGs on water, sanitation and universal primary education, as well as address issues of gender equity and inclusion.
