Detailed description of Tool

The COVID-19 Hygiene Hub is a broad partnership housed at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) that draws on scientific, operational, and creative expertise from a network of organisations. This initiative was developed by individuals from LSHTM, the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST), and the Wash’Em team.

The platform has three principal functions:

  • to connect institutions and organisations implementing hygiene programmes in response to COVID-19 with technical advisors who can answer questions and provide detailed advice in real time
  • to provide access to a searchable set of resources which summarise current evidence and guidelines and make practical recommendations for crisis-affected or LMIC settings
  • to offer a platform for sharing what is working among governments, international organisations, and civil society actors
