The Facility Evaluation Tool for WASH in Institutions (FACET) is based on globally recognised indicators and is suitable across the continuum of humanitarian and development interventions. A simple and adaptable analysis tool, FACET offers state-of-the-art online/offline mobile data collection of water provision services, sanitation facilities, and hygienic conditions (WASH) for schools, and medical waste management in health care facilities. Specific online and offline analysis tools allow off-the-shelf analysis of the collected data. A practitioner's guide explains the basic operation and features of the tool, and how to adapt it to local contexts.

FACET is a simple and adaptable analysis tool that offers state-of-the-art online/offline mobile data collection on an open source platform. It is an easy-to-use monitoring tool for WASH delivery services in health care facilities (FACET WIH) and schools (FACET WINS). For each setting, a core and an expanded version including gender sensitive questions is available for performing short or detailed assessments. At the end of the survey and in line with recent updates, each WASH service level is calculated by FACET according to the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program (JMP) laddered approach and displayed on the mobile device ("basic service", "limited service", "no service").

The FACET Practitioner's Guide is available in English and French, introduces the tool's basic features and offers a guideline on how to adapt it to the local context. It provides informative insights from field experience and offers additional material for enumerators, as well as report templates.

The FACET Analyzer is an easy-to-use Excel-based offline tool that facilitates the analysis of FACET survey data. It detects the type of survey being done (schools or health care facilities incl. delivery rooms) and updates headings, graphs and tables accordingly. The tool can also import two different datasets, which is ideal to compare national or regional datasets or to compare baseline and endline data. Once data is imported, the FACET Analyzer automatically generates graphs and tables based on the JMP laddered approach. In addition, a newly designed separate dashboard displays individual facility results for each WASH indicator and respective sub-indicators. For health care facilities, the dashboard separates the results for general service areas and delivery rooms. All graphs and tables can be copied and pasted into reports and presentations..
