Formative research on handwashing with soap/ash in Zambia

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

In order to understand the determinants and motivators of handwashing with soap/ash, SNV Zambia engaged Helios Construction and Consulting Limited to undertake a formative research on handwashing with soap/ash practice. The formative research on handwashing aimed at understanding handwashing behaviour, attitudes, practices, barriers, motivations and communication channels.  This was to be used to inform the design of suitable interventions to promote the practice of hand washing with soap/ash at the five critical times.
The research was undertaken in the four districts of Northern Province (Kasama, Mungwi, Luwingu and Mporokoso) in March 2015.
