Declaring an End to Open Defecation One Village at a Time

The WASHplus integrated WASH/nutrition initiative in Mali targets 187,000 women of reproductive age and approximately 60,000 of their children, aged 0–59 months in three districts with high rates of stunting in the Mopti Region. One of the project’s objectives is to increase demand for low-cost sanitation among rural households and communities. WASHplus employs the community-led total sanitation (CLTS) approach to ignite villages to collectively abandon open defecation and empowers household investment in environmentally appropriate low cost latrine models.
