Emotional demonstrations (emo-demos) of handwashing with soap at vaccination centres

Emotional demonstrations (emo-demos) are used in behaviour-centred design to trigger behaviour changes, such as handwashing with soap, by creating disgust and shame. Through SNV's Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene For All (SSH4A) programme in Tanzania, vaccination centres in villages were found to be an ideal place to raise awareness of the importance of washing hands with soap among pregnant women, mothers and caregivers. This case study provides practical information for implementing an emo-demo for handwashing at vaccination centres and a brief discussion on the remaining challenges and lessons learned by the SNV team and their partners on the ground.

Abstract

Emotional demonstrations (emo-demos) are used in behaviour-centred design to trigger behaviour changes, such as handwashing with soap, by creating disgust and shame. Through SNV's Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene For All (SSH4A) programme in Tanzania, vaccination centres in villages were found to be an ideal place to raise awareness of the importance of washing hands with soap among pregnant women, mothers and caregivers. This case study provides practical information for implementing an emo-demo for handwashing at vaccination centres and a brief discussion on the remaining challenges and lessons learned by the SNV team and their partners on the ground.
