An adaptation of the WASH & CLEAN study

WaterAid, the Soapbox Collaborative, the Pemba Public Health Laboratory and the Ministry of Health conducted a study in Zanzibar to:

  • assess the coverage of functional WASH and IPC facilities in maternity units across Zanzibar
  • assess stakeholders' perceptions of cleanliness and infection prevention control system failures
  • inform the design of a phased improvement plan in support of improving the quality of care in maternity units with regard to WASH and IPC in Zanzibar. 

The project used an adapted version of the WASH & CLEAN tools.
