Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

Service: Research & Studies

The baseline involved a survey of 239 households in five slum areas of Puducherry where the toilets are being installed, to understand practices related to water access and use, toilet access and use, hygiene practices and solid waste management, health issues, and quality of life. The survey served as a benchmark to measure the outcomes of the intervention; as well as to inform the intervention, so it could be tailored to the needs of the community.
