Translating Disability-Inclusive WASH Policies into Practice: Lessons Learned from Bangladesh

December 2022

This research report finds that Bangladesh’s WASH policies focused on improving access to WASH services at home and in public settings and providing accessible information on WASH for people with disabilities.

Affordability, participation, protection from harm, and ensuring high-quality WASH services were also included but to a lesser degree. However, not all references to these issues in the included policies included clear and concrete activities to achieve them. Consequently, there is a risk that policy implementation might not match stated aims.
