Inadequate sanitation facilities contribute to the deaths of thousands of women and children worldwide. In fact, 2.6 billion people – with a big percentage from the sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to improved sanitation, and over nine million children under the age of 5 die annually from preventable water, sanitation and hygiene-related diseases.

In order to improve people’s health, Plan Uganda introduced Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) within its supported communities in the districts of Lira, Kamuli, Tororo, and Luwero in 2007. CLTS is an approach that involves mobilizing communities and focuses on sanitation and hygiene behaviour change.

This Publication identifies key CLTS processes, best practices, lessons learnt and challenges. It further suggests relevant recommendations that can inform Government and development partners on CLTS, as a feasible approach to enhance rural sanitation.
