This is a review of the deployment of a mass sanitation module by the British Red Cross to Haiti after the January 2010 earthquake. The module is intended to provide sanitation facilities for up to 20,000 people; a self-contained team of trained delegates and pre-packed sets of standardised equipment can be deployed to work with host national society counterparts to mobilise volunteers from the community, providing rapid training for delivery of both hardware and software components of the module. The module is intended to provide safe disposal of excreta, solid waste, waste water, and medical waste; vector control; facilities for hand washing, bathing, and laundry; household water treatment; promotion of good hygiene practices; and advice on the management of dead bodies.
