Evaluating WASH First: a first line of defence against the COVID-19 pandemic

The “WASH First - Scaling up WASH SDG efforts: The first line of defence against COVID-19” was seen as an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic in at-risk countries. By promoting hygiene awareness and improving access to safe and clean water, toilets and washing facilities, it mainly focused its efforts on those furthest behind, especially women and girls. 

The programme was implemented by the Netherlands WASH SDG consortium, coordinated by Simavi, aiming to contribute to COVID-19 prevention efforts by reaching almost 5.5 million people in six countries: Ethiopia, Indonesia, Uganda (countries from the existing WASH SDG programme) and Kenya, Mozambique, and Rwanda. 

Collaborating with national consultants in all six countries, RiH conducted an endline evaluation. Combining various methods – such as observations, Key Informant Interviews, the collection of Stories of Change – helped the team provide the consortium and their partners with an independent comprehensive review of the WASH First programme outputs and achievements from start (September 2020) to finish (November 2021).
