Abstract: Post-implementation monitoring surveys (PIMS) are part of WaterAid’s global monitoring requirements for assessing the current status of water and sanitation services installed 1, 3, 5 and 10 years previously. This Briefing Paper sets out a summary of findings and recommendations from a survey undertaken in Salima District during August 2013. Findings are discussed in relation to four service level indicators for water (quantity, quality, access and reliability) and for sanitation (design, use, quality and hand-washing). Two critical findings for water concern per capita consumption and significant variations in the performance of different pump types. For sanitation, two challenges relate to the distance between latrines and communal water points, and secondly sustaining hand-washing facilities.
