What's the approach take for hanwashing behaviour change during COVID-19 pandemic?

In Nepal, handwashing behaviour change programs have been implemented by various organizations in community. It was implemented following the previous experience rather than applying the different approach like Wash'Em.

Peur ou sensibilisation ?

La distinction entre la sensibilisation au risque et la création de la peur dans une communauté est délicate. Comment éviter de susciter la peur lors de la sensibilisation à une maladie ?

Wash'Em par rapport à d'autres approches de conception de programmes d'hygiène

Comment l'approche Wash'Em se compare-t-elle aux programmes que vous avez conçus dans le passé ? Si vous n'avez jamais conçu de programme, comment voyez-vous la contribution de Wash'Em aux programmes d'hygiène ?

I think in reality it's common that there is not one design that would work well for all people with disabilities. Making hygiene more accessible therefore requires us to work through community leaders and Disabled Persons Organisations to identify people with disabilities and work with them to design facilities that suit their needs. 

Some resources that could be useful are the new compendium of handwashing facilities21 (developed during the pandemic). This covers information on the accessibility of some designs. In the past, I have found the inclusion audit tool developed by WEDC25 very useful. It's designed for water and sanitation but can easily be adapted for hygiene. There are also some tips in this Hygiene Hub learning brief45 about inclusive programming. 

It would be great to hear the experiences of others too.
