Understanding the Cost of WASH in Health Care Facilities: Where Do We Start?


Cost data are critical to ensuring sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) service delivery in healthcare facilities (HCF), but standardized cost collection methods are lacking. Researchers at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill developed a 10-step costing model method to collect cost evidence. CDC researchers calculated total program costs for a short-term WASH program in 117 HCF in 5 districts in western Kenya. These researchers provide valuable insight into understanding costs data collection in WASH in HCF.
