It is everyone's responsibility to ensure people with disabilities are included23 in all COVID-19 hygiene promotion programmes. We can do this by putting equality and inclusion29 at the centre of our response, applying human rights principles67, working with disability rights groups and persons with different abilities when designing programmes and ensuring devices such as handwashing facilities are accessible to everyone. 

Example: WaterAid Zambia developed a universal handwashing station to cater for people with disabilities, particularly wheelchair users, after receiving feedback from a person with disabilities following a handwashing challenge.
