Pedal-operated handwashing station responding COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 spreads rampantly and local authorities must take action to prevent further transmission, reduce the impact of the outbreak, and support control measures. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, implementing handwashing station to promote hygiene behavior effectively, WaterAid Bangladesh (WAB) has demonstrated different technological options including pedal operated handwashing stations. A document titled ‘HANDWASHING STATIONS: An easy-to-use technological and context-based’ has already been published and shared by WAB which is being very widely used by the sector. This document provides an additional guidance to demonstrate pedal type handwashing facilities that can be widely used in low-income countries.
