Understanding Hygiene Behavior and Hygiene Behavior Change

01 October 2020

8:00–9:00 a.m. (London time) | 3:00–4:00 p.m. (Manila time) | via Zoom

With more than half of 2020 spent under the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic already, proper hand hygiene has become mainstreamed, if not ingrained, into public consciousness. Access to and sustainability of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services are vital to protect human health. 

Robert Dreibelbis, Associate Professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), presented the latest research and evidence on hygiene promotion as a critical and specialist area. He specifically delved into the attributes of hygiene behaviors and how they compare and differ from other health behaviors. He also focused on the hand hygiene program process and its implications to programming at scale. 

This webinar was organized by the Water and Health advisory team of the ADB Water Sector Group, and is part of the ongoing work to upscale an integrated WASH and health approach in ADB operations.
