Harriet’s study focused on “Gender Responsiveness in the provisioning and management of water and sanitation facilities in East African Universities: A case of Makerere University, and University of Dar es Salaam.” Harriet through geospatial tools and perception studies discovered that provisioning and management of water and sanitation facilities is not gender responsive. Consequently, this negatively affected male and female students’ access to and utilization of water and sanitation facilities leading to gender inequalities at those universities. There was also lack of water and sanitation policies at both universities, therefore water and sanitation facilities were inadequate and toilet designs did not address access and utilization needs of both male and female students. The study recommends the need to formulate and implement gender responsive water and sanitation framework and policies by the two universities. This study was funded by Makerere-Sida Bilateral Research Corporation and was supervised by Associate Prof. Consolata Kabonesa, Prof. Livingstone Luboobi and Assco. Prof. Majaliwa Mwanjalolo.
Congratulations Dr. Kebirungi Harriet!!
