The UK is playing a leading role supporting hygiene and hand-washing with soap in schools in at least 37 developing countries.

We are working closely with civil society, business and research organisations to provide guidance and advice, use communication channels to promote hygiene, support the establishment of hand-washing facilities, and provide essential hygiene supplies including soap and sanitiser.
