Advocating for Increased use of Evidence in Sanitation Policies: The MEDS initiative by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The measurements, evidence, and dissemination for scale (MEDS) programme aims to promote increased use of evidence in sanitation policies by investing in measurement and evidence to understand the effectiveness of various sanitation approaches. It is an annual event convened to bring together the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s grantees in the sanitation sector to share lessons drawn from their ongoing sanitation interventions and how data from these interventions can be applied to influence positive change and create environment for up-scaling. MEDS convening is used to report on programme progress, and for the Foundation, it provides an assessment of the impact of their grant making, partners also take the opportunity to share lessons that learnt.
The 2017 MEDS was convened in Patna – Bihar, India bringing together an array of the Gates Foundation grantees from the sanitation sector from across the world.
It is my pleasure to share with you the 2017 MEDS report from where you will learn about a number of inspiring projects from across the world with the potential of changing the sanitation landscape.
