Research shows that many emergency latrines are not used by the people they are intended for.
Sani Tweaks is about simple changes that can fix this: consulting users, modifying latrines, and providing sanitation as a service, not a one-off installation.
After years of development, the Oxfam Supply Centre and WASH teams are pleased to unveil a new piece of kit to overcome many of the problems seen with existing handwashing solutions.
Oxfam aims to be the leading player in humanitarian WASH by:
- demonstrating rapid and high quality emergency response,
- influencing the WASH sector with evidence of our effectiveness,
- supporting community resilience in disaster prone and fragile contexts and
- enhancing national capacity to improve WASH coverage for the most vulnerable.
All humanitarian agencies can access Oxfam's equipment from the Oxfam Supply Centre. The website includes all specifications and instruction manuals for our kit.
