Summary

The Global Scaling Up Handwashing project of the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) aims to test whether handwashing with soap behaviour can be generated and sustained among the poor and vulnerable using innovative promotional approaches. The primary objectives of the project are to reduce the risk of diarrhoea in young children and increase household productivity by stimulating and sustaining the behaviour of handwashing with soap at critical times. Overall, the project aims to generate and sustain handwashing with soap practices. One of the project’s global objectives is to learn about and document the health and welfare impacts of the project intervention. To measure the magnitude of these impacts, the project is implementing an impact evaluation using a randomized-controlled experimental design to establish the causal effect of the intervention (treatment) on specific health and welfare outcomes. This technical paper presents the findings of the WSP impact evaluation baseline survey in Peru.
