Until the mid 1990s, water and sanitation was one of the major program focuses of UNICEF. In the early years the
focus was on the installation of water supply system and building capacity in relation to water supply systems. As it
became clear that the installation of water supply systems had not improved children’s health, the focus shifted to
hygiene and sanitation. UNICEF initiated an inter-sectoral community based program called Decentralized Planning
for Child Program (DPCP) which works with the community, the DWSS, NRCS and NEWAH. This study examines
the status of water, hygiene and sanitation in 11 DPCP and 6 non-DPCP districts. The study also assesses the
progress of hygiene and sanitation interventions for the current MPO period in non-DPCP districts.
