This training pack comes with a guide and pocket flashcards to assist in training communities on hygiene and sanitation. The guide is to help communities gradually improve their environments and manage their clean water and sanitation facilities, particularly for the prevention of diarrhoea and diseases related to water, sanitation and environment.

This guide has six steps. The first five steps help trainers take the community group through the process of developing a plan to prevent diarrhoeal diseases by improving water supply, hygiene behaviours and sanitation. The sixth step involves monitoring and evaluation. Each step contains between one and three activities. The manual is available in both English and Vietnamese.


The six steps and activities for each step are:

  1. problem identification: mapping water and sanitation in the community; and health problems in the community;
  2. problem analysis: good and bad hygiene behaviours; investigating community practices; and how diseases spread;
  3. defining solutions: blocking the spread of diseases; and tasks of men and women in the community;
