This paper presents a number of findings from the
research “Sustainability of hygiene behavioural change”
carried out in six countries, with a special focus on the study
conducted in Kenya and its subsequent results. The paper
gives an overview of those aspects that contribute to the
implementation of hygiene promotion interventions that
lead to sustainable changes in hygiene behaviours. It also
considers the implications for the design of effective approaches.
At the end of the paper the authors advocate for
the development of an easy-to-use tool to measure the cost
and the effectiveness of hygiene promotion interventions
and list the factors such a tool should assess.
