To understand the gaps and to highlight the need to invest in the promotion and practice of hand hygiene in India, UNICEF India commissioned IRC with the support from the Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability (CGBA) and the Centre for Youth and Social Development (CYSD) to assess the existing commitments at the national level and at the state level (Odisha), and their implementation at the district level. The assessment focussed on 5 ministries: Ministry of Jal Shakti (MoJS), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Ministry of Education (MoE), Ministry of Women and Child (MoWCD) and the Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR). This brief provides key recommendations for hand hygiene programming at the national level as well as for each of five ministries separately from a systems perspective focussing on five building blocks: policy and legislation, finance, institutions, monitoring and infrastructure.
