Abstract: This paper considers ways that the practice of handwashing can be implemented in a community or family context. Given that handwashing has proven to be an effective barrier against diarrhoeal disease and respiratory infections and that people are particularly vulnerable to these diseases in low-income communities, it is vital that this practice is implemented. Yet little work has focused on implementation of the practise at a grass roots level. The paper further discusses why handwashing is difficult to implement and proposes a technical solution that may enable handwashing to be more accessible, convenient and possible.
