This compendium presents low-cost technologies to improve the accessibility of household water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities. It is designed for use by people working directly with communities in rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, including health workers and community volunteers. Most of the ideas are designed to ensure access for disabled and older people, but are suitable for anyone who may have difficulty using standard facilities. Families can adapt the examples described to suit their needs and budgets. The main focus is on household facilities rather than institutional facilities, although some ideas might also be useful in these settings.
