Blog: Hand Hygiene for South Asia

Text 'Blog: Hand hygiene for South Asia'. Find pairs of hands being washed with soap and water

The Sanitation Learning Hub have recently published a blog providing a very brief overview of Hand Hygiene for South Asia , which draws on WHO and UNICEF's Global Hand Hygiene for All initiative and vision.  

Almost 2 in 5 people in South Asia don't have a designated handwashing facility with soap & water on premises. This blog looks at South Asian countries currently producing national road maps to achieve hand hygiene for all. It provides links to Hand Hygiene Country Snapshots from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka - which shows progress so far
