What Influences Open Defecation and Latrine Ownership in Rural Households?: Findings from a Global Review

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

To identify common factors that positively or negatively affect sanitation behaviors across countries, the Water and Sanitation Program recently performed a global review of its formative research studies. The studies, conducted among households since 2006 as part of WSP’s Scaling Up Rural Sanitation and Domestic Private Sector Participation programs, have informed the development of behavior change communication (BCC) and other demand-creation strategies and tools. The review’s findings are explored in this new Working Paper What Influences Open Defecation and Latrine Ownership in Rural Households?: Findings from a Global Review, which focuses on three specific sanitation behaviors: open defecation, acquisition of toilets, and improvement of latrines.
