What impact does the provision of separate toilets for girls at school have on their primary and secondary school enrolment, attendance and completion?

Protocol for a systematic review of the evidence

Abstract

The primary aim of this systematic review was to identify and synthesize evidence of the impact of separate toilets for girls on their enrolment and attendance in schools. The authors did not identify any studies that were designed to assess the impact of separate-sex toilets.

Thus, with an absence of studies in this area, there is evidence neither for nor against the impact of separate toilets for girls on their educational outcomes.

A number of recommendations for future research are discussed.

There is a protocol for this systemtic review
