The programme engages NGOs, private sector organizations and state networks as implementing partners in targeted blocks in the states of Assam, Bihar and Jharkhand. The programme actively supports and ensures consistency with the Government of India’s Swachh Bharat Mission, aimed at universal sanitation coverage by 2019. This includes supporting partners to effectively utilize available funds for collective behavior change, infrastructure and other sanitation services.
