Achievement reported for commitment " Enabling strategies/implementation of guidelines"

Enabling policies created after SACOSAN V at least for two of the categories mentioned SBM is a comprehensive sanitation programme focusing on girls, men, women, children, etc. SBM is a reframe of the missions/policies already in place targeting sanitation in India, NBA for rural areas and NUSP (2008) for urban areas. The existing mission/policies have been renamed and backed up by funding program, SBM. For men and women, under SBM (U), guidelines are given for community toilets and public toilets. (Community toilets: 1 seat for 35 men and 1 seat for 25 women). Under SBM (G), guidelines are given targeting Menstrual hygiene management needs of women and girls, disabled people along with incentives for the construction of IHHL for all physically handicapped and women headed households. To address the sanitation needs of children in schools, SBSV has been launched under which, strategies including design principles, technical designs of toilets for boys, girls, behavior change initiatives, MHM, handwashing facilities and other essential interventions are issued including for disabled children. Another mission, National Bal Swachhta Mission has been launched for children. Under SBM (G), funds will be made available for preliminary IEC works including for triggering behavior change as one of the strategies to achieve universal sanitation. To address the sanitation needs of disabled people, MDWS is in the process of releasing a Handbook on Sanitation facilities for People with Special Needs. The MDWS has also issued Menstrual Hygiene Management guidelines to states to be funded under various sanitation programmes. *Even though guidelines exists and have been issued, but in terms of implementation, not much progress seems to have been achieved targeting elderly, disabled people
