Effects of community-led WASH on Covid-19 in the Democratic Republic of Congo- Household Survey
This study uses a cluster-level randomized controlled trial to evaluate the causal impact of the VEA program across 332 rural villages. VEA is a national community-led water, sanitation, and hygeine program in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Although VEA has been operational since 2008, the study focused on more recent activities; as the program was implemented in these villages in the later phase of the program (throughout 2019). It involves experimentally varying the provision of the VEA program to a set of villages to examine the causal impacts on Covid-19 knowledge, attitudes, and practices, water governance, water access, infrastructure development, availability of sanitation services, and health. We interviewed households in-person at 5 months post-intervention, and by phone at 12 months and 18 months. We plan two more rounds of phone surveys and one more in-person interview.
This is the accompanying survey for this project.
