Integration of Household Water Filters with Community-Based Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion

I've recently come across a study on the Integration of Household Water Filters with Community-Based Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion. It  presents a year-long study consisting of two rounds of data collection with the main goal to determine whether the LifeStraw Family 2.0 product (a household water membrane technology) could be integrated into the existing community based program in Rwanda. The study covers the reach in the target population, the use (adoption rates) and the performance (drinking water quality). 

Enjoy the reading!

A Germ's Journey Hand-Hygiene Educational Resources

Join Us On A Germ's Journey | A Germ's Journey 

The A Germ's Journey project's interdisciplinary (psychology, health, education) research has resulted in the co-creation of a wide range of interactive educational resources (including books, webgames, videos and posters) that studies have shown improves children's understanding of the importance of handwashing, germ transfer and disease development, leading to improved handwashing. The resources are free-at-the-point-of-access and are currently utilised across three continents (Africa, Asia and Europe) in schools, museum exhibits, community centres and refugee camps. 

A Germ's Journey centres around the ethos of joint agency and collaboration, with all resources being developed alongside international partners and end-users to be culturally authentic for global use.
