This paper outlines a case study focusing on the very poorest people in a water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programme in urban areas of Bangladesh. WASH focuses on economic access through a cross-subsidy approach, and uses poverty ranking by community to identify the hard-core poor. Two case studies are presented; one about a blind elderly man and the other about a frail elderly woman. The paper would be useful for people interested learning about WASH programmes for poor people in urban areas in Bangladesh
