The Drinking Water and Sanitation Program (DWSP) was implemented by the NRCS in 1983 as a component of its
Community Development Program. After the successful completion of Phase III, the project was extended to Phase
IV (1998 to 2003), covering six new districts of Chitwan, Sarlahi, Saptari, Jhapa, Ilam, and Panchthar, with more
emphasis on institutional development. This study measures the impact of the DWSP Phase IV on reducing morbidity and mortality. The study assesses the health and sanitation awareness among the community people; effectiveness and sustainability of drinking water and sanitation units; institutional development; and human resource development in selected VDCs of the six districts.
