Non-Household Monitoring

Expanding WASH coverage and monitoring in non-household settings is an important post-2015 development objective. In the International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, we reviewed the status of non-household monitoring and developed a typology of non-household settings. We found most actors focus on monitoring WASH in schools and health facilities with less attention on settings such as markets and workplaces. To achieve robust national and international monitoring, action must be taken to set guidelines, build national capacity, and translate data into actionable evidence.
