WaterAid Zambia has worked in partnership with the Monze District Department of Health since 1995, supporting the work of the Department’s Environmental Health Technologists (EHTs) in extending access to safe water, sanitation and improved hygiene for rural communities in Monze District, Southern Province. A participatory evaluation of this work, facilitated by local and international consultants, was carried out in October - November 2000. One of the key objectives of the evaluation was to examine, from the community’s perspective, the impacts of the water supply, hygiene and sanitation promotion programme supported by WaterAid and implemented by the Department of Health. This was the first participatory evaluation carried out in the district since the beginning of the programme although two, more conventional, evaluations had previously been conducted (1994 and 1997). In excess of 400 community members were involved in the evaluation as were more than a dozen field extension staff drawn from a range of government departments in the four districts in which WaterAid Zambia operates.
