Hygiene: UN-Water GLAAS Findings on National Policies, Plans, Targets and Finance   [open pdf - 621KB]

From the Key Messages: "Understanding how governments and external support agencies (ESAs) are addressing hygiene is critical during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and will continue to be so after. Approaches to increase handwashing with soap and provide infrastructure for hygiene, as well as activities to promote and complement hygiene practices, contribute to improved public health. Therefore, it is important to understand what actions are being taken by governments to enable hygiene promotion, facilities and handwashing with soap. This highlight summarizes data collected by the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) initiative led by the World Health Organization on how governments and ESAs are supporting hygiene."
