UNICEF, a GHP Steering Committee member, has a number of resources designed to help water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs achieve a greater impact. The following tools provide many great ways for implementers to better promote handwashing habit formation both on and after Global Handwashing Day.
Three Star Approach for WASH in Schools (2013)
Schools and early learning centers are excellent entry points to encourage children in developing a habit to handwashing, which is why it is an essential element of the Three Star Approach for WASH in Schools. This guide is designed to improve the effectiveness of hygiene behavior change programs. This approach ensures that healthy habits are taught, practiced, and integrated into daily school routines.
Scaling-up Group Handwashing in Schools (2016)
Availability of water and soap are the basic prerequisites for handwashing. This compendium is the result of a partnership between UNICEF, Fit for School, and GIZ to respond to demand from the field for practical designs for low-cost group handwashing facilities that can be constructed and maintained by schools themselves. The compendium is based on inputs of many of professionals in the WASH sector and includes practical, low-cost handwashing designs from field experiences in Africa, Asia, and Australasia.
Handwashing Promotion Monitoring and Evaluation Module (2013)
This toolkit developed is a must-read for handwashing program implementers. It covers all steps that should be taken to evaluate a handwashing behavior change program. This toolkit can assist you and your organization to assess the impact your Global Handwashing Day celebration, campaign, and event activities.
