This impact assessment is the result of a qualitative review of the impact of the Tanzania Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (iWASH) Program based on a selection of case studies collected in two of the recipient villages. It forms part of the documentation initiative of the iWASH Program. The intention of this exercise was to provide an overview of the impacts and lessons learned from the implementation of the iWASH Program over the last three years, and capture relevant insights for similar interventions in the future. Implementation of iWASH started in January 2010 and ended in December 2013, with the goal, "to support sustainable, market driven water supply, sanitation and hygiene services to improve health and increase economic resiliency of the poor in targeted rural areas and small towns within an integratedwater resources management framework."
The iWASH Program was a USAID-supported initiative implemented by the Global Water for Sustainability (GLOWS) consortium under the leadership of Florida International University (FIU). The key implementing consortium organisations were Winrock International, and CARE International, supported by WaterAid, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and other local partners and government with input from others such as target communities.
