Women's involvement in a rural Bangladesh water and sanitation project.
Rural women were involved in a water and sanitation project (WSS) in which health impacts were compared between children in two areas : intervention and comparison areas.
In intervention area people were provided with handpumps, latrines and hygiene education, whereas, in the comparison area, people did not receive these project inputs.
In the intervention area women were directly involved in the site selection of handpumps and latrines, their installation, construction, and maintenance.
Observations on women's involvement and their performances in the intervention area are presented.
About 89% of the pumps maintained by women (n=30), and 86% of those maintained by project workers (n=49) were found to be in good working condition.
