Achievement reported for commitment " National Hygiene strategy developed with guidelines"

Guidelines given for targeting disabled and gender groups to be given priority in toilet construction. Also there exists evidence for creating awareness with respect to MHM under IEC. Training modules issued for Asha workers and ARSH by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on menstural hygiene to address the needs of adolescent girls. However, there is little evidence of the active monitoring of the compliance as per state implementation plans. The most work that seems to be happening is under the SBSV campaign on MHM and gender sensitivity towards girls and also for hand-washing awareness and practice. Page 7 of SBSV guidelines points towards the various initiatives and also subsequently there is evidence of improvement over the years in terms of toilet availability and usage. Even though there are many other ways used under SBSV to effect behavior change, there is however weak or no evidence on these being implemented in practice. Guidelines exist for handwashing. States in their annual Implementation plans mention separate facilities for disabled and women households. UNICEF monitors sanitation facilities that exist in schools with respect to toilets, hand washing, etc. *There does not exist any compliance indicators with respect to hand washing and MHM along with the fact the implementation has not been very impressive
