LGUs can develop complementary strategies to further encourage and sustain proper hand hygiene.
LGUs can increase number of accessible and well-maintained hand-washing facilities and/or sanitation stations in public spaces with sufficient supplies.
This Health Promotion Playbook for Environmental Health provides local government units with ready-to-use tools to help promote and protect a critical determinant of health and well-being: access to safely managed water and sanitation, and proper hygiene. This present module of the Health Promotion Playbook provides an evidence-based intervention that local decision-makers may find useful for implementation at the level of the community; this intervention may be modified by local governments to more appropriately address the specific issues in the community. Likewise, the components included herein may be modified to local contexts, subject to a needs assessment of LGUs or authorized sub-units.
