Abstract

In 1992 the Water and Sanitation Collaborative Group, along with a.o. PAHO/WHO, UNICEF and the Swiss Development Cooperation Agency conducted a survey on latrines in Honduras. The sample had 1254 units spread in 16 out of 18 departments, and comprised 36,8 per cent plain pit latrines, 60,4 per cent water seal toilets and 2,8 per cent composting latrines. The main conclusions are as follows: average lifetime 5 to 6 years; 81 per cent were in good physical condition, but only 74,9 per cent were being adequately used and no more than 43,4 per cent received appropriate maintenance. Little difference showed between literate and illiterate people related to good or bad operation and maintenance of latrines. However, the illiterate people appear to be more receptive to training.
