Core questions and indicators for monitoring WASH in Health Care Facilities in the Sustainable Development Goals
This document provides a set of core questions and indicators for WASH in HCF to be used for harmonized national monitoring. The monitoring results allow better comparison of survey results over time and between countries, as well as facilitate global analysis of WASH in HCF in the context of the 2030 Agenda. The indicators include definitions for basic water, sanitation, hand hygiene, health care waste management, and environmental cleaning services. Each indicator is supported with a set of recommended questions for use in data collection, which allow classification of facilities in relation to “service ladders” that can be used to monitor progress.
