What is its purpose?
The indicator assesses the proportion of households who keep their latrines clean - an essential precondition for their use and for ensuring effective vector control.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Collect the following data by using observations of latrines owned by a representative number of the target group members:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTION (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1 for data collector: Is the household's latrine clean? (no faeces, urine, etc. present)
A1: yes / no
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of households who keep their latrines clean by the total number of observed latrines. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
1) In the case of communal sanitation facilities, the indicator can be changed to " % of communal sanitation facilities that are kept clean". This can be determined based on interviews with randomly selected users, key informant interviews and observations.
