Understanding Hand Hygiene Behaviour in Four Indian States

WaterAid, India

Outline India undertook a formative evaluation with WaterAid India to gauge the awareness and practices of hand hygiene and its importance across 64 villages.

The study, based in Rajasthan, Bihar, Odisha and Chattisgarh, explored the presently existing hand hygiene practices at the individual and household level in rural communities. It sought to ascertain access to hand hygiene facilities at the household level and to identify the facilitators and barriers to hand hygiene practices. After extensive pre-testing and tool review, spot observations and in-depth interviews were conducted in 1280 households across 64 villages, operationalized using the mWater platform to record and analyze data.
