GIZ JA 2017-001: ‘Fit for School’ – a School-Based Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Programme to Improve Child Health: Results from a Longitudinal Study in Cambodia, Indonesia and Lao PDR

The FIT program assessment study (FIT-PAS) from 2012 to 2014 was conducted in partnership with Academic Centre for Dentistry Amsterdam, University College London, New York University, University of Jena, and Ministries of Education in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Lao PDR. Over the initial two-year implementation, FIT lead to improved access to handwashing facilities with water and soap and stimulated healthy hygiene practices such as individual handwashing with soap at critical times. Further, FIT supported the implementation of the national deworming program in each of the countries. Most importantly, FIT was seen to reduce the development of new dental caries by 24%.
