Zambia – assessing the Value for Money of DFID’s Sanitation and Hygiene Programme in Zambia
Progress in sanitation and hygiene in rural Zambia has been limited since the declaration of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2000. To enhance achievements in the sector, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) directed US $32 million between 2011 and 2016 through the Zambia Sanitation and Hygiene Programme (ZSHP), implemented by UNICEF. By providing access to adequate sanitation and hygiene to 3 million people and 500,000 school children, the ZSHP is expected to contribute to a reduction in the prevalence of diarrhoea among children under 5. This report presents key findings of a value for money analysis of the Zambia Sanitation and Hygiene Programme to date.
