This report summarises the findings of the WaterAid Uganda study, undertaken from 2001 to 2003, on the sustainability of hygiene behaviour changes selected areas of the Mukono, Mpigi and Katakwi districts in Ghana. This was part of a multi-national concerted effort in Ghana, India, Kenya, Nepal, and Sri Lanka with funding from the European Union and coordinated by the International Water and Sanitation Centre (IRC). The key findings indicate that changes in hygiene behaviour are sustainable and that the passage of time impacts more negatively on hand-washing skills and practices than on latrine use and maintenance. The report gives recommendations on hygiene promotion based on findings from the Uganda study as well as from the studies in the four other countries.
