Improving latrines in rural Eastern Africa

The past years have been both exciting and challenging for most sanitation professionals including myself.  Many rural communities have been motivated to construct and use latrines.   In Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia, many districts are now open defecation free (ODF) and many other districts are in the pipeline to become ODF.  However, there is a big concern; more than 80% of the latrines in use are basic pit latrines that are in poor physical and unhygienic conditions (WSP 2012, 2013, SNV 2012, 2013).   Unless these latrines are improved, rural households are unlikely to achieve most of the social economic and health benefits that accrue from use of latrines.
