Researchers wanted to determine whether sanitation marketing alone, Output-Based Aid (OBA) subsidy targeting the poor alone, or a combination of both interventions would make a difference in latrine uptake across different poverty levels in Cambodian villages. The researchers analyzed data from households across three income groups – non-poor, near-poor, and poor – to determine differences in latrine uptake across different poverty levels.
Targeted subsidies and sanitation marketing should be recognized as complementary interventions, each targeting a particular income group, and their additive effect among the overall population is dramatic.
