Free publication - Promoting good hygiene practices

A joint publication by Water Aid, IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, and the International WaterCentre.

The objective of this compilation is to strengthen the capacity of organisations to design and deliver effective hygiene promotion programmes leading to the improved health of communities.

This compilation of three keynote papers and 31 case studies searches for answers to the question: What makes hygiene promotion work?

The case studies are written by authors from a wide variety of organisations working in South Asia, South East Asia, the Pacific and Africa. They provide lessons and learnings from very diverse experiences which are relevant beyond the specific project location, and for programmes in other regions too.

The case studies were first written for workshops and publications organised by IRC and WaterAid between 2007 and 2010.

This compilation draws out a synthesis of key lessons and makes the case studies more accessible by providing a snap shot overview and access on an accompanying CD and a dedicated website at
