Hand Hygiene on the Move

For mobile workers (people who work away some or all of the time from their work base or they have no fixed work base) accessing hygiene facilities is challenging as public and commercial facilities are not readily available, use may come at a financial cost and workers may need to seek permission. Workers often rely on the goodwill of people in private homes, develop their own workarounds or avoid using facilities. For mobile workers, lack of hygiene facilities fosters inequalities, impacts their dignity, welfare and productivity, and is a serious health concern for communities as a whole.

In this policy brief we describe the background situation, summarise the findings of our project and make recommendations to policy makers.
