This is an adapted plan for a water and general hygiene course developed in Yemen and based on the book Life skills-based hygiene education . This plan can create some ideas for support and help to schools in developing countries. It has been drawn up by Nadeem Al-Murshedi, a teacher trainer and researcher from Yemen.
Thanks to decades of advocacy work, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in School (WinS) is moving up on political agendas, leading to more programmes and the involvement of a more diverse range of partners. This paper represents the first formal attempt to analyse the engagement of private sector actors in WinS multi-sector partnerships.

Data for decision making, costs and services of WASH in schools
During SACOSAN VI Splash, BRAC WASH and IRC hosted a side event on data for decision making using schools as an entry point. As there is growing demand for measuring the quality of services, especially in schools, as part of attaining the Sustainable Development Goals, this methodology will help the decision makers to make progress. They get insight into how much they have to spend to get from no service or a below-standard service level to a basic or improved service level, and what data is required at baseline for informed planning and implementation. The basic level indicates if the programme has achieved the national standard and if there is a gap how much has to be invested to bridge that gap.
