  • United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). December 2013
  • This publication aims to provide a better understanding of opportunities to successfully implement Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools programs (planning, operations, management, and policy formulation). It aims to encourage the routine collection and use of more reliable data to strengthen country and regional level planning for WASH in schools, and will serve to guide policy-makers on steps necessary to ensure that water and sanitation issues are not an obstacle to a quality education for all the children of South-East Asian Countries. The report is divided into two parts, with annexes: To give a more regional perspective, the first part summarizes the highlights of the literature review for 11 countries and interviews and discussions in four selected countries for more in-depth analysis. The second part provides an overview of each country in terms of six themes: (1) education structure and trends in primary school education; (2) rationale for WASH activities in schools; (3) enabling environment; (4) WASH in schools; (5) main challenges; and (6) partners.
