|Part I: Introduction to the PHAST|
|Purpose and overview of the guide|
The guide has seven steps. The first five help you take the community group through the process of developing a plan to prevent diarrhoeal diseases by improving water supply, hygiene behaviours and sanitation. The sixth and seventh steps involve monitoring (that is, checking on progress) and evaluation. The information gained from these activities is used to work out whether the plan has been successful.
Each step contains between one and four activities. Instructions on how to facilitate each activity are provided under the following headings:
- What to do
Most of the activities require the use of drawings or a chart, called tools, to help facilitate the discussion.
The diagram shows the seven steps, outlines the activities of each and the tools used. You may wish to tick off the activities and tools as you complete them.
