Hi Luis,
I have recently joined SASDU. A very powerful story which captures why improvement in sanitation is so difficult to achieve. Perhaps one of the lessons should be to more strongly emphasise the health impact viz., medical costs, stunted growth and learning disabilities on children so that parents and community internalise some of the long-term benefits. There should be greater financial incentives for maintaining ODF community and more importantly it should be additional). If higher levels of govt reduce other discretionary grants then the incentive to improve sanitation would not be very strong.
