WSSCC/3ie Systematic Review ‘Promoting handwashing and sanitation behaviour change in low- and middle-income countries’.

WSSCC/3ie is pleased to announce the official release of the webinar recording and the Systematic Review ‘Promoting handwashing and sanitation behaviour change in low- and middle-income countries’.

We welcome you to view the webinar recording and read the adjoining reports by clicking here http://wsscc.org/2017/11/29/recording-available-wsscc-3ie-webinar-systematic-review-effective-ways-promote-handwashing/here .

The highlights include:

  • Interventions to promote sanitation and handwashing behaviour change include community-based approaches, social marketing, messaging and theory-based approaches. These may be provided alongside financing, such as loans

  • A combination of different promotional approaches is required, tailored to the particular implementation context. One size does not fit all

  • Community-based approaches may be effective in changing handwashing and sanitation behaviour. Working in a community-based way is probably effective in reducing open defecation

  • Social marketing approaches in combined handwashing and sanitation programmes probably improve latrine use and reduce open defecation

  • Sanitation and hygiene messaging probably improves handwashing in the short term, but has no impact on open defecation behaviour or safe faeces disposal

  • Further research is needed on theory-based approaches using elements of psychosocial theory
    Interpersonal communication and use of incentives might be promising promotional elements
