The Govt. of Tamil Nadu (GoTN) has been a pioneer in not only in attempting improved standards of public health by taking steps to help stop open defecation, but has also prioritised the full sanitation chain, including the strengthening of septage management as an economical and sustainable complement to network-based systems.

The Tamil Nadu Urban Sanitation Support Programme (TNUSSP) supports the Government of Tamil Nadu (GoTN) and select cities in making improvements along the entire urban sanitation value chain. The TNUSSP is being implemented by a consortium of organisations led by the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS), in association with CDD Society, Gramalaya and Keystone Foundation.
