Re: Reply: Handwashing Day 15th October 2022, a look back at where we have come from i.e The Tippy Tap

Dear SuSanA Users,

As we look back at discussions that we have had on the forum in relation to Handwashing, I thought to unearth this conversation about the most basic handwashing technology that has/ was for years an entry point in promoting handwashing in the most marginalized contexts. 

The following questions comes to mind looking back and reading through this thread.

1.  Is/ Was the Tippy Tap a disaster as some practitioners put it? or a vital tool for Behaviour Change promotion?
2. What other community-driven hand-washing interventions have succeeded the Tippy Tap? emphasis on community driven.
3. Do interventions and practitioners today still implement and stand by the Tippy Tap concept?
3. I feel there is now a shift towards group handwashing facilities that in most cases have to be procured/ manufactured elsewhere and then brought on-site. Is this a recipe for another ''failed'' intervention later on with O&M, ownership and capacity issues etc.

I look forward to your thoughts.
