In Uganda, access to safe sanitation remains low, only 33% use improved facilities (JMP 2017). The low access is attributed to a weak sanitation supply chain, low knowledge on sanitation and hygiene among households and limited financing options. Financing is a key issue due to the Ugandan policy of zero subsidy towards household latrine construction. The majority of the households in need of sanitation solutions are poor and with limited knowledge of the available financing options. The FINISH Mondial programme has worked to strengthen linkages amongst households, financial institutions, private sector and government to accelerate sanitation improvement to meet SDG 6.
