The 2018 Handwashing Behavior Change Think Tank was held in Manila from October 10 -12. At the event, more than 60 participants shared best practices, explored new findings and innovative thinking, identified shared barriers, and co-created solutions in key areas, including;
· Behavior Change Across Settings: Applying best practices for impactful, scalable, cost-effective handwashing programming across settings (communities, schools, healthcare facilities, and other settings), including challenging and water-scarce settings
· Design and Innovation for Behavior Change: Integrating behavior change theories and design practices to improve handwashing measurement and product design
· Hygiene Systems and Integration: Sharing learning across sectors working in hygiene, utilizing existing structures to help hygiene behavior change initiatives reach scale
The objectives of the 2018 Handwashing Behavior Change Think Tank were to:
· Facilitate improved collaboration among stakeholders working in hygiene;
· Share learning and experience from diverse perspectives; and
· Co-develop solutions to advance the ‘state of the art’ in handwashing behavior change.
