Handwashing with Soap - Two Paths to National Scale Programs. Lessons from the Field: Vietnam and Indonesia

Handwashing with Soap - Two Paths to National Scale Programs. Lessons from the Field: Vietnam and Indonesia
  • World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). May 2011
  • This document summarizes challenges and lessons learned from two WSP Southeast Asian programs: the Handwashing Initiative (HWI) in Vietnam, and the Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing with Soap (PPP-HWWS) in Indonesia. The program in Vietnam has concentrated on first gaining an understanding on how people actually behave and then determining how to change that behaviour, while the program in Indonesia leverages the reach of the private sector and other partners to scale up handwashing initiatives that were previously researched and already underway. This document is most useful for: Practitioners who see the need or potential for a national scale handwashing with soap promotion program; Governments, and practitioners such as NGOs, who want to add a hygiene component to a new or existing water and sanitation program; and Organizations who are interested in examining public-private partnerships.
