Sanitation and hygiene (S&H) is a central interest of RiPPLE, to be examined alongside water supply. The focus will be on S&H in rural areas, beginning with research on initiatives to improve household S&H. Four research areas have been identified: socio-cultural, technical, policy and institutional drivers, and financing systems. An overview of the case study 'Approaches to Meeting the Universal Access Target for Sanitation and Hygiene in SNNPR' is presented.
