Issue

Context:

  • The Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen) recently launched the 150th birth year celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi, as the Mission enters its fifth and final year of implementation.
  • The SBM has transformed into a massive ‘Jan Andolan’ created on the ground using information, education, and communication, aiming to bring behaviour change.

Background

  • Sanitation programs themselves are not a new occurrence for India, with programs being run since 1981. However, in contrast to the construction or supply led programs of the past, SBM has a demand centric model.
  • The program focuses on behaviour change to generate demand for sanitation services by the rural population which is then followed by supply.
  • However, some recent reports have sought to undermine the progress made by the SBM on the ground, with incorrect claims.
