Child Feces Disposal in Nepal
Abstract:
Safe disposal of children’s feces is as essential as the safe disposal adults’ feces. This brief provides an overview of the available data on child feces disposal in Nepal and concludes with ideas to strengthen safe disposal practices, based on emerging good practice.Child feces disposal steadily increases with the child age groups, however both safe disposal and open defecation peak in children aged four,Safe disposal differs widely across the wealth asset quin tiles.6The poorest quintile of households is substantially less likely than the richer and richest households to report safe child feces disposal: only 12 percent of the poorest quintile reports safe disposal (see Figure 5). Children’s feces from 22 percent of the poorest households were left in the open—which is essentially open defecation. Looking at overall sanitation facility coverage for households with children under age three in Nepal, only 24 percent of the poorest households reported use of any toilet/latrine, compared to 98 percent of the richest quintile. This is an important factor in child feces disposal: by definition, safe disposal is only possible when there is access to a toilet/latrine.
