Summary

Behavioral Determinants of Handwashing with Soap Among Mothers and Caretakers: Emergent Learning from Senegal and Peru(WSP; Devine, et al., 2012)
Using the FOAM framework to analyze data from two large household surveys, the authors found that two behavioral determinants, beliefs and access to soap and water, can be correlated with handwashing with soap behaviors in both countries for the proxy measures used. In addition, different behavioral determinants will likely have an influence depending on critical time or juncture for washing hands with soap. For example,  evidence from Senegal suggests that ease of access to soap and water is associated with the presence of a handwashing station with soap and water at or near a kitchen facility, but not at or near a toilet facility.
