The Government of Indonesia launched ‘Sanitasi Total Berbasis Masyarakat’ (STBM) which means Community-based Total Sanitation, as their national sanitation strategy in 2008. The strategy has five pillars:

  • Stop Open Defecation,
  • Handwashing with soap,
  • Proper drinking water management,
  • Household liquid waste management,
  • Proper Household solid waste management.
