Achievement reported for commitment "Enabling policies created after SACOSAN V at least for two of"

Rural WASH Policy  was developed and endorsed by the Government in 2010. This policy is now under revision ( revised version drafted and ready for endorsement by the Government) which provides framework for universal WASH coverage with women and children and other marginalized groups as the main targets. However the endorsement goes very slow. Urban Water and Waste Water  Management sector policy (2014)  also drafted with focus on marginalized groups. The national health policy draft Oct. 2015 focuses on gender equality  , general equity, disability , children , women and girls. Unfortunately enforcement  and approval of policies and strategies  due to frequent change of top  Managers/ key staff of the Government  and checking and screening by the new advisors  go slowly.
