Norms, Knowledge and Usage

The partial or total non-use of toilets, with some or all in a household defecating in the open, is a growing concern.

Triggering Handwashing with Soap in CLTS: Insights on What Works from Malawi

The CLTS approach was introduced to Malawi in 2008; since 2011 it has been a key component of a national strategy for making Malawi Open Defecation

Frontières Numéro 4: Durabilité et ATPC : État des lieux
