Lamjung District

We just got back from a field visit to Lamjung District, one of the most pleasant and beautiful districts I have visited. We were there doing a Barrier Analysis: looking at barriers to using chlorine for water treatment in households. We spent two long days training enumerators, then two more days visiting households. The interviews were private - we didn't want influences like in-laws answering the questions or not getting the real answers ("Who disapproves of you using chlorine?"). The conclusions? Overall, access to chlorine was a barrier for users and non-users, and family members approval played a large role as well. Interestingly, cost didn't seem to matter that much.

Ready for field visits.
