Shared sanitation in low-income urban settlements: Evidence from Ghana, Kenya and Bangladesh

Themes: Public/shared toilets Sanitation Urban Sanitation Research Initiative WASH
Countries: Bangladesh Ghana Kenya

Shared sanitation has immensely contributed to sanitation access in urban areas, but is at best considered a “limited” solution due to the lack of quality standards within Sustainable Development Goal 6.

This policy brief presents the main results of the QUISS project (Quality Indicators of Shared Sanitation), a three-country comparative mixed-methods study that identified the key criteria of what constitutes “acceptable quality” shared toilets in urban low-income contexts and provides recommendations for strengthening the acceptability, functionality and sustainability of shared sanitation facilities.
