District ODF Profile

With a total estimated population of 51,654, the Lambussie District has a total of 58 communities out of which 26 had been officially verified as open defecation-free in June 2018. Lambussie District authorities have set December 2019 as the deadline to eradicate open defecation and with the current rate there is every indication that the district will live up to this expectation. The main ODF intervention in the district is the implementation of the Rural Sanitation Model and Strategy, with CLTS as the main sensitization and latrine demand generation approach. The district currently receives technical and funding support from UNICEF and IDA.
