Dear DHS,

My understanding is that DHS is planning to change the definition of safe child feces disposal in future reports so that buried is considered unimproved? This would match the standard MICS tables, as well as UNICEF's current analysis methodology - shown for instance on page 18 of the Pneumonia and Diarrhea 2012 report (http://www.childinfo.org/files/Pneumonia_Diarrhoea_2012.pdf) and new country profiles WSP and UNICEF are developing. Could you please confirm?

Thanks!

Best,

Elizabeth
