The 2017 Annual Report covers key accomplishments for the year, including:
- Celebrating Global Handwashing Day: This year's Global Handwashing Day focused on the benefits of handwashing in building healthy futures, and participants hosted celebrations in communities, on national levels, and on social media.
- Learning about drivers for handwashing behavior change: Our webinar, nudges document, and research summary helped handwashing practitioners leverage behavioral drivers to encourage handwashing with soap.
- Advocating for the critical role of hygiene in the SDGs: Handwashing with soap has benefits in health, education, equity, and much more. We produced an advocacy brief and used global events to call attention to the life-saving potential of good handwashing habits.
