WG 13 - Take the handwashing quiz!

Dear Working Group 13,

Ahead of Global Handwashing Day on October 15th, I'm happy to share our handwashing quiz with you: globalhandwashing.org/wp_quiz/global-handwashing-day-quiz/ . Please take the quiz and share it with your networks to help celebrate Global Handwashing Day.

This was developed by the WG 13 co-leads (Sarah Dickin, Om Prasad Gautam, and me) as an initial product to kick off the work of our WG. We welcome your feedback on the quiz and your ideas for future areas of collaboration for our working group.

Carolyn

Re: WG 13 - Take the handwashing quiz!

Dear Carolyn,

I just took your quiz and really liked it. I learnt a fair bit. That question about school days lost worldwide: a number of 300 million school days (or whatever it was) is hard to grasp. How about rather converting it to number of school days lost per month per child. That would be an easier figure to grasp for a parent.

You asked about ideas for future areas of collaboration for your working group. Here is one: could I get you and your working group interested in reviewing and improving the Wikipedia article on handwashing?: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_washing

And the one on Global Handwashing Day: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Handwashing_Day

Both are in need of improvement (always). You could either improve them directly online or collect what needs to be improved offline in a Word document which you could send to Sanitation Wikipedia project for their action: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dear All,

As we commemorate Global handwashing day 15th October 2022, here is something significant to contribute to.  Update the Wikipedia article on Handwashing: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_washing  it hasn't been done for a while now and the one on Global handwashing day here:  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Handwashing_Day
