Hi Winnie. There are already several guidelines and case studies on WASH and Nut or WASH in Nut. And there are also studies showing WASH impact on addressing undernutrition -GAM or chronic, and other studies showing no or very limited impact. So yes most researcher I met (from the LSHTM or J Hopkins Univ) said there is a need for more robust RCT studies. What exactly is the research question you are thinking about? However if only for WASH and Nut guidelines I recommend to use the existing ones.
we can continue the exchange on email if you wish.

Dear Alando,

I work for the ministry of health in Kenya(Nutrition and Dietetics Unit) and we have already conducted trials in some counties on integrating WASH and Nutrition specially in school. It is however not clear on whose behalf you are inquiring. My question would be, are you aware of what is happening within country especially in the Ministry of Health. Kindly inbox me for more details. We have further developed WASH and Nutrition Communication materials for schools. Kindly also clarify which county you work for. I would be willing to engage and offer support
