The authors would like to recognize and thank all those who helped to make this guide a reality. First we thank the Institute of Water and Sanitation Development in Harare for a first draft of this document. We are grateful to those who field-tested the second draft: NETWAS in Kenya, Peace Corps volunteers and Leticia Addo in Ghana, the International Union of Health Promotion and Education in Delhi, India, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham, in the USA. They provided many insights, which helped to improve this guide. We also thank the UNDP/World Bank Water and Sanitation Program groups in Nairobi and New Delhi for their important roles in facilitating the field tests and for their continued partnership with WHO in the development and promotion of PHAST. Margarita Kenefic assisted in incorporating the results from the field tests into the guide. Final editing was provided by Jacqueline Sawyer.

The concepts, activities, tools and drawings used in PHAST have been borrowed largely from the earlier work of others. Please see Activity, tool and artist acknowledgements for details.

This guide could not have been produced without the input and even earlier field-testing carried out in 1994 in Botswana, Kenya, Uganda and Zimbabwe and with the support of the governments of those countries, UNICEF, WaterAid, CARE/Kenya, KWAHO, PLAN International, Mvuramanzi Trust, Lutheran World Federation, Africare, NETWAS and IWSD.

Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank Sida and DANIDA for their financial support of PHAST since 1993.
