Adequate and well functioning school sanitation and hand washing facilities play a major role in reducing the incidence of diarrhoeal diseases and worm infestations in the school environment. In Ghana, a national Community Water and Sanitation Programme has been put in place to improve health through the provision of water and sanitation facilities with hygiene promotion. Schools are one of the main target groups for the programme. However, the gains from the provision of these facilities are being eroded by poor Operation and Maintenance (O&M) practices.
