Cumulative sales: iDE has implemented market-based approaches to sanitation since 2009. In that time, we have facilitated the sale of over 1,000,000 toilets in six countries in Africa and Asia. As we expand our portfolio, our global learnings help us solve intractable market problems more quickly and more efficiently.
Global Sanitation Cost-effectiveness

Cost-effectiveness: As each of these country programs develops, we are able to measure how cost effectiveness—the amount of program funding required to facilitate each latrine sale—changes over time. We have performed this analysis for the five programs where we’ve achieved greatest scale, and have found that our cost-effectiveness improves over time as our work to build sanitation markets takes hold.
