    Core Questions and Indicators for Monitoring WASH in Health Care Facilities (JMP, 2018)

    This document presents recommended core questions to support harmonised monitoring of WASH in health care facilities as part of the SDGs. The core indicators and questions in this guide were developed by the Global Task Team for Monitoring WASH in HCF, convened by the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation
    and Hygiene (JMP), and working under the auspices of the Global Action Plan on WASH in HCF. They are derived from current global normative documents, national standards and regulations, questions that have been used in facility assessment surveys and censuses, and the normative criteria of the human rights to water and sanitation: accessibility, availability, quality and acceptability.

      Waste-to-Value Sanitation in Kakuma Refugee Camp

      In response to a call for sanitation solutions for difficult ground conditions in refugee settings, Sanivation introduced an innovative market-based solution with a waste-to-value component to Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. This report examines the business model and financial model that Sanivation developed during the project and illustrates some of the real world challenges and opportunities for waste-to-value sanitation. It is hoped that the insights from this research will provide a useful reference for potential investors and entrepreneurs, as well as humanitarian practitioners looking to design self-sustaining waste-to-value sanitation services in refugee and low-resource settings in the future.
