Summary report on considering disability in COVID-19 hygiene programmes


London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine's Jane Wilbur has developed this excellent technical brief: 'Summary report on considering disability in COVID-19 hygiene programmes'

Applying the principles of human rights (equality and non-discrimination, participation, transparency, accountability and sustainability) within COVID-19 responses can reduce inequalities. Community-level hygiene and COVID-19 prevention programmes are also an opportunity for WASH actors to practice disability-inclusive WASH, something the sector has been prioritising in recent years.

Developed with support from the Australian government, this technical brief is full of useful information and considerations including barriers to handwashing and how to include people with disabilities in COVID-19 WASH responses as well as some handy DOs and DON'Ts.

This resource and many other useful resources for COVID-19 responses live on the LSHTM's Hygiene Hub.
