The framework can be used as a basic starting point for measuring quality in humanitarian WASH responses, which can be further developed and adapted to each context over time. The focus areas, outcomes, indicators and questions have been developed by distilling and adapting a range of humanitarian quality standards into a format that can be used as the basis for developing a context-specific quality assurance system. The framework should be made contextually appropriate by defining key standards or expectations as noted in the key terms. The focus of quality monitoring should evolve over time to adapt to the changing context through joint review and endorsement of the Strategic Operational Framework (SOF).
