Access Improved Sanitation Facility
Improved sanitation refers to a facility that hygienically separates human exrement from human contact, which unlike open defecation, has less of a likelihood to contaminate both the water supply and come in contact with food or people that poses health risks. Access to improved sanitation facilities across the watershed are extremely low, reported by households at 13%, below the national rural average of 17% (2006 WHO figures). There were higher rates in the section communal close to the coast and lower rates in upper watershed areas. For more information please click here for the full baseline study.
