Wash'Em: Handwashing Demonstrations

The Handwashing Demonstrations tool allows you to generate quick insights into whether a person’s home and community environment enable or prevent handwashing practices. It is useful to start with this tool as it requires you to go to people’s homes and understand how handwashing is performed in a real-world setting. By using the tool, you will learn which things to look out for so you can tell whether handwashing is a part of normal routines. You will learn how to identify barriers that might prevent the behaviour and design interventions that make handwashing more highly prioritized, more convenient, and more desirable.
