Frequent and proper handwashing with soap is vital to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In response, we have developed this Handwashing Compendium for Low Resource Settings.
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. 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:
- 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
