What could be standard for Hand Washing Station at School

Dear all,

Today a new publication has been added to the SuSanA Library which could be of interest especially for this forum threat.

Scaling up Group Handwashing in Schools - Compendium of group washing facilities across the globe is the result of a collaboration between the UNICEF Programme Division WASH, New York, the GIZ Regional Fit for School Programme and the GIZ Sector Programme Sustainable Sanitation.

The Compendium of Group Washing Facilities comprises 19 group washing facilities and three variations. By providing information on the design structure, usability aspects, level of difficulty regarding construction, operation and maintenance, advantages and limitations, expenses and Bill of Quantity, of each facility, it presents examples and solutions for group washing facilities in schools as part of the Three Star Approach jointly developed by UNICEF and GIZ.

Re: What could be standard for Hand Washing Station at School

Hello Jan,

Looking on 6 years since this compendium was launched. Is there something we look back at? I am particularly interested in looking back as we commemorate Handwashing Day on 15th October 2022.

I have extracted this photo (first image) of the Tippy Tap group handwashing facility from the compendium and wonder about things as simple as the volume of the containers used... water runs out very quickly.... refilling is time-consuming... the containers are not durable... spillage when refilling must be high.... I wonder why bigger containers were not recommended instead(ref to my second image). 

Do you have some information or studies on the outcomes (successes or failures) of these proposed interventions?
