Nearly one quarter of Zambians lack access to sanitation facilities. In rural communities, the government of Zambia adopted community-led total sanitation (CLTS) to address this problem. One year after the implementation of a mobile-to-web monitored CLTS intervention, Chiengi District, Zambia, was verified as open defecation free with complete 100% coverage of household-level latrines. Chiefs and traditional leaders led the achievement. Impacts on individual health are yet to be measured in a robust way.
