An assessment of School WASH infrastructure and hygiene behaviours in nine states

Under Swachh Vidyalaya, significant progress has been made in toilet coverage and functionality. To comprehensively understand the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) status post the launch of the Swachh Vidyalaya Abhiyan, WaterAid India undertook an assessment in 453 schools in 34 districts across nine states to take stock of WASH services and infrastructure, understand the functionality and usage and know the status and awareness of hygiene including menstrual hygiene management (MHM).
