Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) plays a key role in not only promoting health among communities but also in improving the quality of life of individuals in the target communities. WASH programmes continue to face the challenge of sustainability especially in developing countries. Sustainability mechanisms focus on ensuring that the established WASH systems continue to function optimally over an extended period of time.
