Handwashing compendium for Low Resource Settings - A living document

This guidance may also be found in the Institute on Development studies Library at: https://www.ids.ac.uk/publications/

"We hope this quickly disseminated, living document will enable immediate actions to be taken, and trigger further learning to help the sector adapt and evolve in these extraordinary times.
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:
- 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 to this page shortly. Second edition translations are currently available."
