Through this bulletin, we will update on technical engagement, new resources released on the Hygiene Hub website, COVID-19 hygiene projects around the globe, and other Hygiene Hub activities.

Common enquiries and technical engagement

The Hygiene Hub has continued to connect with organizations across the world to learn from, and provide support to, hygiene programmes responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To date, we have received 64 enquiries from 43 organisations in 31 countries through our website. Common enquiries this past week included:

  • What kind of handwashing facilities are needed for COVID-19 responses?

  • How can handwashing be promoted in COVID-19-affected settings where soap and water are scarce?

  • What should COVID-19 hygiene kits include and how can they be distributed safely and effectively?

Interactive map updates

Our interactive map also now features 128 examples of COVID-19 response programmes. Please share or update your project updates with the Hygiene Hub via the link here.

In response to web enquiries and discussions with partner organisations, we have continued to develop and revise our evidence summaries on a range of topics related to COVID-19 response.
