Study Session 1  Understanding Exclusion from WASH in Ethiopia


Everyone, whoever they are, should have safe water for drinking, access to a toilet or latrine, and handwashing facilities. These services should be inclusive and available for all but, in practice, this is often not the case and many people are excluded.

In this study session you will be introduced to the key concepts of inclusion and exclusion in relation to water, sanitation and hygiene services. You will learn about the people who are most likely to be excluded in Ethiopia and the reasons why. You will also learn about the policies and programmes at both international and national levels that provide the framework for inclusive WASH in Ethiopia.
