Costing hand hygiene interventions


A new tool launched by WHO and UNICEF is designed to estimate the cost of interventions to improve hand hygiene in domestic settings.

Adequate levels of funding are critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 target of universal hand hygiene by 2030. Through understanding the costs of implementing hand hygiene plans, funds can be allocated in a more efficient and effective manner. The tool aims to provide country-specific cost estimates of achieving universal hand hygiene in households by 2030.
