This research brief discusses the challenges of poor sanitation and hygiene in rural Tanzania, provides an overview of two large-scale campaigns that sought to address these problems, and shares key results of an evaluation to assess the impact of these two campaigns. Overall, the evaluation suggests that “a large-scale sanitation campaign can be effective in promoting latrine construction and reducing open defecation – important intermediate steps toward the end goal of positive health outcomes, especially for children.”
