This research aims to understand the barriers and opportunities that disabled and older persons with additional access requirements may face using standard WASH facilities. An action research approach is being used, which applies a mixed methods approach to gather evidence before and after WASH interventions in one Ward in Zambia and in two Districts in Uganda, to assess the impact and benefits for the target group. This paper provides an overview of the preliminary baseline data findings, how these have been used to inform the planning and re-design of the WASH programmes to respond to identified barriers and needs, the analytical framework and participatory process used to analyse preliminary findings, as well as some of the key inclusive WASH activities that now form practical action plans in both country programmes.
