Uganda IDP Case Study – pdf download

In 2005 Community Health Clubs were started in IDP Camps in Northern Uganda, where numerous NGOs had been trying to introduce safer sanitation for the past 18 years in one of the worst ongoing conflicts in Africa.  Inspite of much sceptism that nothing could be done to aleviate this chronic public health situation, the 120 CHCs managed to achieve unheard of changes in the camps, with the most convincing indicator being the construction by the community of over 11,000 latrines in eight months, not only meeting but exceeding  ambitious targets. If ever there was a proof of the effectiveness of CHC to create a demand for sanitation this case study is it!
