The impact of implementating the D-Washe programmes in Chanyanya Community: Kafue District, Zambia: What role has the National Water Policy played?
This study looked at the impact of implementing D-Washe programmes in Chanyanya Community in Kafue District. The study involved both qualitative and quantitative methods of research to give general and actual overviews of the water and sanitation situation in Chanyanya Community Results from the study suggested that sanitation facilities in Chanyanya Community were adequate and many (27%) people opted to use open defecation (OD) to answer the call of nature. This has been seen as a source of contamination of unprotected surface water sources such as shallow wells. The lack of proper sanitary facilities has been seen to have negative impacts on human health hence measures should be put in place to improve the situation.
