In recent years there has been heightened adoption of CLTS approach to improve community sanitation in order to prevent or reduce diseases. This review article examines the effects of uplifting sanitation by way of community led sanitation (CLTS) methodology in addressing prevention and reduction of sanitation and hygiene related diseases in rural communities, especially in developing countries. Systematic review was performed by searching existing literature. Several articles were retrieved for this purpose. Most articles reviewed reported aspects of prevention and reduction of sanitation related diseases by improving sanitation through implementation of CLTS implying that it's an effective approach. Further research is needed to compare effects of improving sanitation using other approaches or technologies in preventing or reducing diseases associated with low or poor sanitation. This will contribute to identifying cost-effective approaches for delivery of essential package of sanitation for promoting health and preventing diseases.
