WASH Experiences of Women Living with Disabilities in Cambodia

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Cambodia’s access to basic water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) remains low compared to other Southeast Asian countries despite improvements over the last decade. There is limited documentation about the WASH experiences of women with disabilities in Cambodia, for which this publication recommends paying greater attention to the issue.


Key messages within this eight-page brief:

  • WASH challenges are amplified for women, particularly for those living with disabilities. They face unique limitations with regards to accessibility, affordability, safety, information and discrimination.
  • To ensure women with disabilities are heard and their rights are incorporated into WASH efforts, government agencies and development partners can encourage their participation in forums and adopt inclusive, human-centred design approaches for WASH facilities.
