The conditions of school sanitation facilities in South Africa range from excellent to appalling and shocking. Most facilities can be classified as poor or unacceptable. It is estimated that about 90 per cent of rural and peri-urban schools lack well designed and appropriate sanitation facilities. In the Gauteng Province, the economic capital of South Africa, sanitation in schools are of equally low standard. Gauteng Integrated School Sanitation Improvement Programme (GISSIP) is a pilot programme involving 70 schools. It aims to improve school sanitation through focusing on building facilities, providing health and hygiene education with a special focus on maintenance issues.
