This presentation will provide an overview of a two-week community health project aimed at improving hand hygiene in Ugandan primary school children at Bethlehem Parent School. Details to be discussed include community mobilization techniques used to support a hand hygiene initiative, the building of handwashing stations called tippy taps, and an educational session on the critical times of handwashing and proper techniques to promote behavior change to improve hand hygiene. A reflective evaluation of the project being presented will include the community health impact of the project, perceptions of the school children, related hand hygiene behavior changes, and strategies for future work. The water infrastructure in Uganda and related epidemiology considerations will also be reviewed as background to support the significance for this project.
