Abstract: This research aims to understand and address the barriers that disabled, older and chronically ill people face when accessing WASH in Zambia and Uganda. A mid-term review was conducted to assess how the approach impacted on the lives of the target group. A process review was carried out to understand how the approach was developed and implemented. Findings demonstrate that the inclusive WASH approach has improved vulnerable people’s WASH access, though barriers still exist. The approach may have had a positive impact on stigma and discrimination, dignity and self-esteem of vulnerable individuals, but older people continue to face disproportionate levels of discrimination due to decreased mobility and ill health. Vulnerable people’s participation in the intervention is lower than expected, though activities to improve this have been identified. This paper captures findings from both reviews, analyses emerging trends and makes recommendations for practitioners attempting to reduce inequalities in WASH access.
