Understanding the barriers to access WASH facilities and services for people with disabilities

Research brief cover thumbnail

Ensuring disability inclusion is critical to achieving the Government of Lao PDR’s goal of universal access to sanitation and hygiene by 2030. This brief presents research that was designed to generate in-depth data that can be used to ensure WASH services are accessible and inclusive of people with disabilities, and that these contribute to achieving more equitable sanitation and hygiene services for all.

This learning brief is based on formative research data collected as part of SNV in Lao PDR’s Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All Programme, with support from the Australian Department of Foreign
Trade’s Water for Women Fund. It was summarised by Le Huong with support from Gabrielle Halcrow and Anjani Abella (SNV). It was edited by Sarah Bartholomew and designed by Crunchy Frog.

Beyond the Finish Line - SSH4A in Lao PDR SSH4A in Lao PDR aims to progress access and use of safely managed sanitation and hygiene by 2022 that directly benefits over 200,000 people in the three districts of Savannakhet province: Atsaphone, Champhone and Phalanxay.
