Handwashing in Slums to Prevent COVID-19 Infection
By Shabnam Verma - Capacity Building Coordinator
The WHO recommends washing hands for minimum of 20 seconds. As the risks of COVID-19 continue to loom in Indian slums, UHRC conducted handwashing sessions to encourage this healthy practice in slums of Indore.
UHRC social facilitators discussed the need and benefits of regular handwashing with soap and water. Through pictures and pamphlets, the recommended method of washing hands at critical junctures were visually communicated. The participants were then encouraged to wash hands with soap and water following the recommended method.
The sessions were conducted in an open, well-ventilated spaces with every participant wearing a mask. Physical distancing was maintained throughout the sessions
