Indicator Phrasing

English: % of targeted institutions with accessible improved sanitation facilities

French: % des institutions cibles disposant d’installations sanitaires améliorées

Czech: % cílových institucí s přístupnými toaletami vylepšeného typu

What is its purpose?

The indicator assesses the proportion of targeted institutions (such as schools, health centres, administration buildings, evacuation sites) with accessible improved sanitation facilities.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Collect the following data by using observations (Q1-Q5) and conducting key informant interviews (Q1-Q2) with the institutions' employees and users:

     

RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)

Q1: Is there a latrine at the institution?

A1: yes / no

  

(ask the following questions only if the previous answer is YES)

  

Q2: During normal working hours, is the latrine open and operating?

A2: yes / no / only some latrines are operating

   

Q3 for data collectors: What type of latrine is available?

A3

1) pit latrine with slab

2) ventilated improved pit latrine 

3) flush or pour toilet (connected to a sewer system) 

4) composting toilet

5) pit latrine without slab 

6) other - specify: ...........................

  

Q4 for data collectors: Are there separate latrines for women and men?

A4: yes / no

  

(ask the following question only if relevant)

Q5 for data collectors: Is the latrine accessible for people with physical disabilities?

A5: yes / no

 

A facility can be considered as having "accessible improved sanitation facilities" if the responses to Q1, Q2 and Q4 (possibly also Q5) are YES and the response to Q3 is any of the first four options.

 

Calculate the indicator's value by dividing the number of facilities meeting these criteria by the total number of surveyed facilities and multiplying the result by 100. 

Important Comments

1) In many countries, the relevant ministries or UNICEF defined a range of additional sanitation-related standards for schools, health centres and/ or other institutions. Consider including them in your intervention’s design and M&E system.
