This new book aims to boost hygiene promotion efforts. It contains 11 case studies from different countries and two keynote papers from international experts, all written to help people to design programs for the effective promotion of good hygiene practices.
Each of the case studies examines hygiene promotion from its own perspective, ranging from large national campaigns to remote island communities. The majority of case studies describe experiences in the Pacific and South-East Asia, while a few highlight different approaches and issues from other regions.
The case studies are grouped according to the three main approaches to hygiene promotion: community-based approaches, campaign approaches and a school focus.
Key learnings from the 11 case studies are presented using the FOAMS model for behaviour change:
F: Focus practices and focus groups;
O: Opportunities to practice the behaviour
A: Ability to practice
M: Motivation to practice
S: Sustained behaviour change
