Research Themes

SHARE helps generate the knowledge needed to improve sector performance. This includes filling knowledge gaps, synthesising existing research, and pioneering novel approaches for improving sanitation and hygiene practices globally.

Since our inception in 2010, we have conducted research across a range of sanitation and hygiene-related issues to address national sector needs in the countries which we work, focussing particularly on the broad thematic areas of: equity, health, markets and urban sanitation.

In 2015, SHARE commenced a second phase of research and refocused to four new themes: complementary food hygiene, nutrition, urban sanitation and vaccines. The priorities within these will emerge from consultation with sector stakeholders – to identify where SHARE can produce relevant research that adds value – and build on the foundations laid in to date and the strengths of the Consortium – to ensure the rigour of the research.
