World Toilet Day Recap

World Toilet Day was celebrated on November 19! Globally 2.4 billion people lack access to improved sanitation. Given the shared impact on health, education, and nutrition, hygiene and sanitation should go hand-in-hand.

Here are a few of our favorite publications from World Toilet Day 2015:

What's New in Handwashing

Each quarter the Global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing publishes a literature review of the latest evidence around hygiene and behavior change. This quarter, new evidence suggests that people over-report handwashing behavior because handwashing as a social norm is perceived to be desirable. Learn about handwashing measurement, motivation, and more in this literature review, now available on our website
Settings have a significant influence on our behavior. Watch this engaging TEDx Talk from Dr. Val Curtis with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to learn about the power of settings on behaviors such as handwasing.
