A woman stands next to a newly built latrine near Malakal, Upper Nile State. Along with other residents of her community, she participated in UNICEF-supported Community-led Total Sanitation project.

Over the period 2012–13, UNICEF aims to build on the achievements of the previous years to contribute to improving water, hygiene and sanitation services in South Sudan.

The overall programme result for the UNICEF WASH Programme is to have sustained  access to community-managed and improved WASH services that contribute to a reduction in morbidity, a break in the transmission of Guinea worm disease and to peace building by 2013.

Members of the sanitation club at Airport View Primary School in Torit, Eastern Equatoria State, perform a song about the importance of handwashing to their fellow students.

To achieve this result, efforts will be made to ensure the implementation of key outputs:

  • Accelerated and sustained delivery of WASH services to vulnerable communities through investment plans, institutional and legal sector framework.
  • WIMS is functional between all levels and stakeholders, bringing greater equity to the allocation of resources and a solid evidence base for priority setting.
  • Schools and health centres have improved access to safe water sources and local means to operate and maintain these facilities in a sustainable manner.
  • Household and institutional access to and regular use of sanitary latrines and hygiene facilities is accelerated by hygiene promotion and community-led approaches.
  • The WASH cluster coordination and planning mechanisms at all levels are strengthened to improve predictability of partner responses, effective information management, efficient  management of core pipeline assets and productive partnerships among WASH cluster partners.
