Clean Hands for All: A Toolkit for Hygiene Advocacy

February 2018

This toolkit includes tools and resources to help hygiene advocates ensure that handwashing with soap is recognised as critical to health and development.

It is designed to help users develop the ideas, tools, and messages to:

  • advocate to specific audiences to take action to promote and facilitate handwashing;
  • integrate handwashing messaging into existing advocacy campaigns and messages;
  • and engage others to advocate for handwashing.

This toolkit includes an overview of why hygiene matters in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, a short advocacy introduction, and suggestions on audiences, delivery mechanisms, and objectives for hygiene advocacy. It also includes tips for social media, meetings with policy makers, and other common advocacy activities. We encourage you to adapt the messages and templates in this toolkit to best fit your audience.
