In rural Malawi, Eliza wears a bright bib that helps to remind her mum to wash her hands with soap before she feeds her. Aimed at reducing disease transmission, the Hygienic Family trial – a programme of activities and prompts – was developed and delivered in partnership with the University of Malawi WASHTED Centre and community members. The intervention has so far reduced diarrhoea by over fifty percent.
