Good hygiene is critical for preventing the spread of infectious diseases and helping children lead long, healthy lives. It also prevents them from missing school, resulting in better learning outcomes.
For families, good hygiene means avoiding illness and spending less on health care. In some contexts, it can also secure a family’s social status and help individuals maintain self-confidence.
Yet, important hygiene behaviors are difficult to practice without the right knowledge and skills, adequate community support and the belief that one’s own behavior can actually make a difference.
Many children around the world live in conditions that make it difficult to maintain good hygiene. Where homes, schools and health centers have dirty floors; where water for handwashing is unavailable; and even where families share spaces with domestic animals; maintaining hygiene can be a challenge. What’s more, practicing good hygiene is often perceived as a woman’s responsibility, adding to her burden of care. Hygiene is everyone’s responsibility.
