The Facility Evaluation Tool for WASH in Institutions (FACET)

Institutional water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools and health care facilities are key elements of sustainable development and significantly influence people’s health and well-being worldwide. The Facility Evaluation Tool for WASH in Institutions (FACET), jointly developed by Terre des hommes, Eawag and CartONG with support from the UNICEF/WHO Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (JMP), is based on globally recognised indicators and is suitable across the continuum of humanitarian and development interventions. Here we offer a complete package for an entire monitoring project cycle from start to end.

A simple and adaptable analysis tool, FACET offers state-of-the-art online/offline mobile data collection on an open source platform. It is an easy-to-use gender sensitive monitoring tool for WASH delivery services in health care facilities (FACET WIH) and schools (FACET WINS) and contains core and expanded version available for performing short as well as detailed assessments. At the end of the survey, each WASH service level according to the JMP laddered approach is calculated by FACET and displayed on the mobile device ("basic service", "limited service", "no service").

Specific online and offline analysis tools allow off-the-shelf analysis of the collected data.

The FACET Analyzer is an easy-to-use excel-based offline tool that facilitates the analysis of FACET survey data according to the JMP approach. The FACET Analyser detects the type of survey (schools or health care) and updates headings, graphs and tables accordingly. The tool can also import and compare two different datasets. All graphs and tables can be copied and pasted into reports and presentations. following the instructions given within the tool or consult chapter 2.2 of the practitioner’s guide.

Alternatively, the PowerBI FACET Analyzer (PBI) allows online analysis of collected data according to the JMP approach. The different steps required to adapt the PBI templates for a given FACET survey are described in chapter 2.3 of the practitioner’s guide.

A separately available practitioner’s guide introduces the operating principles and basic features of the tool and offers a guideline how to adapt it to the local context. It is available in English and French and separately explains the content and logic of the indicators for schools and health care facilities. Additionally, it provides informative insights from field experience and offers additional material for enumerators and survey trainings as well as report templates.
