Wash'Em

Wash'Em is helping improve handwashing behavior change programs in humanitarian crises. This software-based decision-making tool that helps humanitarian actors design rapid, evidence-based and context-specific hygiene programs. The Wash'Em site features rapid assessment tools, learning modules and practitioner resource guides.

Wash’Em's assessment tools are adapted to the emergency contexts and are directly linked to program design. So far the written guides have been pilot-tested in crises in Iraq, DRC, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.


WASH'Em is supported by USAID and implemented by Action contre la Faim (ACF), The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and CAWST (Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology).
