3rd edition of handwashing compendium now available - plus blog: how can we improve handwashing for good?

Bringing existing information from different organisations into one place, the compendium provides guidance, local examples of and further resources on accessible low-cost handwashing facilities, environmental cues and physically distanced hygiene promotion.

The compendium is a living document which will be updated regularly as more examples and good practice emerge.

This updated version includes new or heavily edited sections on:
  • Handwashing facilities
    • Drying hands
    • Making handwashing facilities accessible
    • Designing handwashing facilities that encourage use
    • Bamboo handwashing station
    • Local examples of handwashing facilities
  • Physically distanced hygiene promotion and community engagement
  • Examples of community engagement

Please share feedback and contributions via email ( SLH@ids.ac.uk ) or Twitter (@SanLearningHub). We are interested to hear how the compendium is being used as well as feedback and inputs to improve it.

For those with limited internet access, individual sections of the compendium can also be sent upon request. French, Portuguese and Arabic translations of the third edition of the compendium will be added. Second edition translations are currently available.
