WASHCost ran from 2008 to 2012 and explored issues and collected data related to the true costs of providing water, sanitation, and hygiene services for the entire life-cycle of a service - from implementation all the way to service delivery. WASHCost provides both face-to-face and online training on the use of the life-cycle costs approach. Since 2011, WASHCost has been providing trainings to a number of large sector based initiatives.
