Many markets for sanitation goods and services in low-income countries remain poorly developed, calling for better quality programming at scale, and presenting opportunities for new approaches and partnerships. At AfricaSan5, UNICEF, USAID and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation convened a side event that explored recent evidence and practice examples. You can read the final session report and view slides for the Introduction, a presentation on experiences in Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria and an overview of the WASHPals MBS desk review.
