Re: Launch of a WASH Behaviour Change Working Group

This sounds great! Thank you for organizing. I will not be able to attend in person, but will there be resources available online?

Cheers,

Hi James,

Thanks for getting in touch! Yes, we'll post the minutes of the discussion and outcomes of the meeting here afterwards so that others who may wish to be involved can still do so.

Also, if you're signed up to WG 13, you will receive emails from us on the WG activities. You can sign up once you're logged in to the main website - click on 'Profile' in the log in box and tick the box for WG 13.

Best wishes,

Re: Launch of a WASH Behaviour Change Working Group

Hello everyone,

Last Tuesday (25th July) we had the WASH Behaviour Change Working Group Meeting during the WEDC Conference.

I have attached a draft of the minutes of this meeting, which includes the direction the group plans to take over the coming months!

If you were unable to make it to the meeting, but would like to be involved in some of the activities mentioned, or have additional ideas, please get in touch. You can post here, or email any of the Working Group leads (Sarah, Carolyn and Om) by clicking on their names on the Working Group home page - http://www.susana.org/en/working-groups/behaviour-change

At a recent count, we now have 336 SuSanA members signed up to this Working Group, so plenty of opportunity to collaborate on Behaviour Change work :)

Best wishes,
Ruth

Re: Launch of a WASH Behaviour Change Working Group

Dear Ruth,

Many thanks for this information.

At the 24th SuSanA meeting in Stockholm on the 26th August 2017, there shall be a session on Approaches to promote handwashing and behviour change in low and middle income countries. (a mixed systematic review). The presentation will be held by Chaitali Chattopadhyay from WSSCC.

I believe this would be quite an interesting presentation for WG 13 members and look forward to seeing you all at the meeting.

Kindly register for the SuSanA meeting here: www.susana.org/en/registration-24th-susana-meeting

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Doreen

Re: Launch of a WASH Behaviour Change Working Group

Hi Doreen,

Thanks for bringing this session to the attention of the WG! We can also post the recording of the session here in the forum for those who will not be attending the SuSanA meeting in person :)

I have updated the draft minutes as there was an additional item regarding compilation of case studies of behaviour change. We also hope to collect case studies from the working group members . Particularly, we'd like some short narratives on how behaviour change has been achieved in a variety of different programme contexts.

We will develop the template for this and circulate it shortly for working group members willing to contribute their experience in this way.

The updated draft of the minutes is attached here.

Best wishes,
Ruth
