Endline Assessment of UNICEF's PhATS programme in Haiyan-affected areas of the Philippines.

The Phased Approach to Total Sanitation (PhATS) program was applied to the Haiyan WASH recovery program to build on the work of the response, which had included providing latrine kits for communities to build shared latrines. The program aimed to reach over 900,000 beneficiaries across six provinces, and aimed to end the practice of open defecation through facilitating changes to social norms; fueling demand for sanitation and hygiene; sustaining demand through supply side interventions; and promoting good governance, resilience and disaster risk reduction. The Haiyan PhATS program was funded and coordinated by UNICEF, in consultation with the Department of Health, and implemented by a coalition of 12 NGOs.
