WaSH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) Safety Plans have been developed to provide a holistic approach to protecting public health through the assessment and management of risks from insufficient or unsafe water supply, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene practices. A successful trial of a WaSH Safety Plan was conducted in an urban community in Kathmandu, Nepal. The trial demonstrated that WaSH Safety Plans are a powerful tool which quantifies the risks posed to the community and strengthens the decision making process in order to justify that interventions are targeted towards specific needs.
