Re: Developing a Handwashing Compendium - guidance on low-cost handwashing facilities

Just to say that I have no idea why my post above keeps being published aligned to the right! Hopefully people can follow it ok but if one of the moderators could fix it I'd be grateful (I have tried editing several times with no success...)

(note by moderator: problem solved; it was a bug at our end with the Arabic script display)

Re: Developing a Handwashing Compendium - guidance on low-cost handwashing facilities

Hi Nitya,

Thanks for sharing! I assume it was developed pre-COVID? Do you know who developed it and how it has been used?

Best,
Mimi

Re: Developing a Handwashing Compendium - guidance on low-cost handwashing facilities

Greetings All, 

I had a quick look at the compendium and wanted to know a bit more about the inclusiveness aspects.  I noticed across the publication the visually impaired were considered in terms of them having access to soap.  My concern is how does this visually impaired person or person on a wheelchair get to the handwashing facility? I didn’t come across anything that highlights how they’d actually know that there’s an existing handwashing facility available to them i.e poster written in braille, paths specifically designed for disabled people, posters in local languages etc. On the facility’s accessibility, for guidance sake I feel there should have been more emphasis on ensuring users with disabilities specifically can have easy access.  

I will however refer to this post inquiries by Mimi on the subject, which suggests that the aspect of inclusiveness within the compendium could do with some accompanying examples: forum.susana.org/inclusive-programming-a...id-19-pandemic#30893

Re: Developing a Handwashing Compendium - guidance on low-cost handwashing facilities

Hi Chaiwe,

Thanks for your feedback and highlighting this important point. We have a section on accessibility which includes information on the importance of location, paths, ramps, tap type etc for facilities and the importance of considering users' needs when planning these. This section draws heavily on the Compendium for Accessible WASH Technologies which we recommend readers refer to. Recognising that some readers may not have time to read multiple publications, we have added a few more details to the handwashing compendium section on this for the next edition too.

As you spotted, we are also trying to include examples of more accessible community engagement and hygiene promotion initiatives for the next edition (although we have not received many to date). Your post is a useful prompt for me though to go back to the main text in this section and make sure that accessibility is sufficiently emphasised.

Thanks!
Mimi

The compendium is a living document which will be updated regularly as more examples and good practice emerge. It has been developed and disseminated quickly so immediate, relevant and timely actions can be taken. This version is the third edition. 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
[/list]Link to the SLH website for 3rd edition and translations of the 2nd edition:  sanitationlearninghub.org/resource/handw...s-a-living-document/

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.

How can we improve handwashing for good? Mimi Coultas reflects on progress made and adapting for local contexts.
