Menstrual Hygiene Management

Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Interventions by the Appropriate Technology Centre for Water and Sanitation (ATC) are aimed at bridging the technological gaps MHM in schools. It involves capacity building of pupils in production of sanitary pads and monitoring of their menstrual cycle. The intervention is based on appreciation that proper MHM catalyzes integrated development approaches aimed at enhancing girl child school attendance and retention. Ministry of Water through the ATC is implementing the intervention in partnership with UNICEF


Sanitation and Hygiene Technologies The ATC has profiled a number of sanitation technologies: EcoSan technologies profiled include: Urine Diversion Dry Toilet, Fossa Alterna, Composting Toilet, Ekolet and tiger Toilet. EcoSan technologies are sustainable sanitation option, at the apex of the sanitation ladder. Profiling was hinged on the need to assess appropriateness of the respective technologies so as to guide on technology adoption, application, Operation and Maintenance.


Solar Disinfection (SODIS) technology and use of WADI indicator SODIS technology is apparently used for purification of drinking water among the rural poor communities of Uganda. Evidence of technology application is at the water school in Kisoro. If well administered, the technology could provide a remedy for enhancing the safety of drinking water without reliance on wood fuel, expensive electricity and gas.

Welcome to ATC

The ATC is premised on the desire to unlock WASH research and development potential as well as catalyze uptake of appropriate technologies in the country. ATC works progresses development of fundamental Science, Technology, Engineering and Innovation needed to transform Uganda into an upper middle-income country by 2040. ATC is uniquely positioned to effect positive change by acting as the knowledge tank, capacity building and technology promotion conduit.
