BEHAVIORAL DIAGNOSTIC

We partnered with behavioral science experts, The Decision Lab, to support our gender-inclusive public toilet model. The full report is provided below. 

Study to characterize fecal sludge (FS) in order to better understand the dewatering processes.

With the support of the Humanitarian Innovation Fund, we partnered with the Civil and Water Engineering at L' Université Laval to study FS dewatering processes, which can lead to important understandings on how we can reduce the emptying frequency and associated costs of desludging. 

CLEANING STUDY

We partnered with the Water, Health, and Applied Microbiology Lab (WHAM Lab) at the College of Public Health at Temple University, to study microbial contamination of latrine surfaces at public toilets in Kathmandu.

 

This is part of our continued partnership to develop an evidence-based cleaning and audit protocol for shared toilet facilities, making them as hygienic as possible.
