This manual is an update of the earlier,
popular manual entitled "Towards Better Programming: A manual on school
sanitation and hygiene education", published by UNICEF and the IRC
International Water and Sanitation Centre in 1998. It contains many examples,
most of which are drawn from a UNICEF-IRC pilot study for School Sanitation
and Hygiene Education (SSHE) carried out in six countries (Burkina Faso,
Colombia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Vietnam, and Zambia). This pilot programme
took place from 1999-2003, with a post-intervention assessment in 2006.
