The new study, Scoping and Diagnosis of the Global Sanitation Fund’s Approach to Equality and Non-Discrimination, authored by Dr. Sarah House, Suzanne Ferron, Dr. Sue Cavill, and with contributions from Dr. Jacques-Edouard Tiberghien is now available in English. (French available next month).

In 2016, GSF recruited an independent team of experts to undertake an in-depth two-part diagnosis of GSF’s approach to EQND. The ongoing diagnosis aims to identify gaps and areas for improvement as well as propose tools, instruments and guidelines for a deliberate and more systematic integration of EQND perspectives in GSF-supported programmes. The first part of the diagnosis – an assessment comprising of visits to six countries (Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo) and a review of documentation across all GSF-supported programmes – was completed in 2016, resulting in the newly released study. While confirming that many people who may be considered disadvantaged have benefitted positively from GSF-supported programmes, the study emphasizes that more proactive attention is needed to ensure no one is left behind. Several recommendations are offered to better integrate EQND throughout the components and stages of all GSF-supported programmes.
