Handwashing with soap is among the most effective hygiene behaviours helping to prevent infectious diseases.
The importance of daily group handwashing has been recognized and integrated into the UNICEF/GIZ Three Star Approach (TSA) to WASH in Schools (WinS), which has gained momentum around the world. With its focus o usable, cost-efficient and adequate infrastructure, the TSA provides a realistic stepwise concept to improve WinS infrastructure. It also creates opportunities for schools, school communities and decision makers in the education and other relevant sectors to establish a healthy learning environment for children to practice good hygiene behaviour in the school setting.
