This bustling food market in Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe, sees hundreds of people come and go everyday.


Fruits and vegetables are handled with bear hands that are not always clean.


This makes the market a predictable place for diseases to spread but also a suitable stage to communicate the hand washing message.


SOUNDBITE (Swahili) Patricia Chibunga, Vendor: "Hand washing is good. As a vendor I want to encourage my clients to wash hands. It only becomes a challenge in the absence of water and hand washing facilities in the market."


To effectively influence people's hygiene practices, especially when water and sanitation access is poor, it is important to stress the advantages and health benefits of hand washing regularly.


SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Salama, UNICEF Representative Zimbabwe: "Just getting everyone to wash their hands with soap. Particularly before eating, and particularly after using the toilet can decrease by that 40% all of diarrhoea in Zimbabwe. It's probably the most powerful thing we have in all the of the health circle to decrease deaths amongst children under the age of five."


To encourage communities, families, and children to wash their hands with soap, demonstrations took place in many key sites such as markets, outside of public toilets, schools and restaurants. But the success of the campaign relies on each and every household to implement better hygiene practices.


SOUNDBITE (English) Dr Custodia Manadlate, World Health Organisation Representative in Zimbabwe: "The washing hand can be done in the market where we are, it can be done in our schools, it can be done also in hospitals but it can be done also in our own homes. […] And if we, at home, we don't teach our children, if we, at home, we don't ourselves practice the washing of hands, we are not doing justice to prevention of many diseases."


At the Saint Peter's primary school, the message was disseminated to children in a playful and participative way.


Children are the most vulnerable to diseases Hand washing is by far the best way to prevent germs from spreading and the first line of defence against the spread of many illnesses.


Together with improved water supply and sanitation, it is a key component of intervention programmes that can significantly save lives.
