Water, Women and Disability Study - Report


A month after TC Harold, Our partners, World Vision and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine launched its, Water, Women and Disability study. A report produced as part of their Water for Women Laetem Dak Kona (LDK) project.

The Water, Women and Disability study aimed to complete a comprehensive population-based study of disability in TORBA and SANMA Provinces in Vanuatu, to measure how common disability is, and understand access to and experience of WASH, menstrual hygiene management (MHM) and incontinence amongst persons with and without disabilities with a gender lens.

The Laetem Dak Kona (LDK) project, funded by the Australian Government’s Water for Women Fund, will be implemented by World Vision Vanuatu with and through its key partners in the two northern provinces of Vanuatu, SANMA and TORBA from 2018-2022. LDK aims to achieve improved health and well-being for people with disabilities and women in these provinces through access to gender-equitable and disability-inclusive water, sanitation and systems. The Water, Women, and Disability study in SANMA and TORBA provinces provides the baseline for LDK, including disseminating findings at all levels in an accessible way, to inform the development of the intervention.
