Key resource: Learning Brief: Men and Boys in Sanitation

Discussions of gender in sanitation and hygiene (S&H) often focus on the roles, positions or impacts on women and girls, who bear the greatest burden of work related to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Efforts to improve S&H and change social norms do not always actively engage men and boys in the most effective or transformative way. We must learn more about the roles men and boys actually play and – if necessary – how they can be modified to make efforts more successful.

Key resource: Men and boys in sanitation and hygiene: A desk-based review

This desk review explores existing literature and examples of men’s and boys’ behaviours and gender roles in sanitation and hygiene (S&H) and the extent to which the engagement of men and boys in S&H processes is leading to sustainable and transformative change in households and communities. We developed an analytical framework for the review clustered around 3 areas: with men as objects to change, agents of change and partners for change.

Rural sanitation poses complex and often intractable problems, and the momentum and scale of sanitation programmes across much of the South Asia region is unprecedented. The speed of implementation means that rapidly identifying what works, filling gaps in knowledge, and finding answers that provide practical ideas for policy and practice can have exceptionally widespread impact provided they are timely, relevant and actionable.
