A hygienic toilet is a facility that is designed, located, built and managed in such a way that users can conveniently ensure their excreta is contained, isolated and/or treated so that it is not a source of contamination. Typical hygienic toilets include standard types of pit latrine, composting toilets, chemical toilets and flushing toilets with water-borne sewerage or septic tanks, as well as more basic traditional systems used in low-density settlements.
Model questions for survey: 1) at present, where do adult members of this household go to the toilet? Where do children in this household go to the toilet? Are women's, girls' , boys'and men's practices different? If so, why (i.e. lack of hygiene awareness or protection & dignity issues preventing certain household members from using the latrines)?
If children go to the toilet on the floor or in a nappy, what is done with the faeces? Observe if there is faces around the living area
