In this introductory level workshop, participants will gain an overall understanding of the issues and best practices for on-site environmental sanitation management in low-income communities.
The workshop explores the relationship between environmental sanitation, disease transmission and health. It addresses technical topics such as human excreta management including different latrine designs; animal excreta management; solid waste management; vector control for mosquitos and rodents; and domestic wastewater management. Aspects of hygiene, such as handwashing and menstrual hygiene may also be discussed.
Participants discuss behaviour change and sanitation promotion to create demand for environmental sanitation and will learn to perform an environmental sanitation inspection and/or an environmental sanitation walk.
