Public pledging for collective behaviour change

CLTS triggering can be powerful but is rarely attended by all members of a community. This weakens its impact and sustainability. On later visits it is quite common to find that people do not recollect triggering. An innovation in 7 GPs of Namkhana Block of the Sundarbans in West Bengal has found that public pledging is a way of overcoming these problems, reinforcing triggering and involving all adults in the community.

Rapport de la mission d’appui a l'ATPC au Benin

Depuis 2009, l’approche ATPC a été introduite au Benin à travers deux formations dont l’une animée en 2009 par EAA (ex CREPA) et l’autre en 2013 par des formateurs malgaches. A l’issue de ces formations, 600 villages ont été déclenchés dans le pays par les partenaires du gouvernement sans résultat probant.
Le Ministère de la Santé s’est ainsi doté en fin 2013 d’une Stratégie nationale d’Assainissement faisant de « l’ATPC » la principale approche pour l’amélioration de l’Assainissement en milieu rural.

Fronteiras Edição 2: Como Despertar para a Lavagem das Mãos com Sabão

A lavagem das mãos é uma parte essencial de bom saneamento e higiene. Quando o Saneamento Total Liderado pela Comunidade (CLTS) e o seu objectivo de comunidades ODF (Livres de Fecalismo a Céu Aberto) são totalmente compreendidos e levados à prática, é claro que lavagem das mãos está implícita na abordagem. Sem tratar a questão da lavagem das mãos e outras práticas de higiene, as comunidades nunca podem tornar-se completamente ODF, uma vez que o objectivo de serem ODF implica cortar todas as vias de contaminação fecal-oral.

Frontières Numéro 2: Comment déclencher le lavage des mains avec du savon

Triggering for handwashing French cover

Le lavage des mains est une composante cruciale d’une bonne hygiène et d’un bon assainissement. Lorsque le concept d’Assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC) et son objectif de communautés FDAL (fin de la défécation à l’air libre) sont parfaitement compris et mis en pratique, il est clair que le lavage des mains est indissociable de l’approche. Sans s’attaquer au lavage des mains et aux autres pratiques d’hygiène, les communautés ne pourront jamais devenir entièrement FDAL car l’ATPC entend couper toutes les voies de contamination fécale-orale.

How to Trigger for Handwashing with Soap

Handwashing is a vital part of good sanitation and hygiene. When Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) and its aim of ODF (open defecation free) communities are fully understood and put into practice it is clear that handwashing is implicit in the approach. Without addressing handwashing and other hygiene practices, communities can never become fully ODF since CLTS aims to cut all faecal-oral contamination routes. However, in practice, the degree to which handwashing is integrated into triggering and follow up, depends on the quality of facilitation.
