Welcome to the WSP Enabling Technologies for Handwashing with Soap Database.

An enabling technology is an external or environmental factor that influences an individual's opportunity to perform a behavior, regardless of their ability and motivation to act. Often overlooked in the design of handwashing initiatives, enabling technologies have been shown to facilitate handwashing behavior in several studies.

The purpose of this database is to provide practitioners with information on the various types of enabling technologies, including but not limited to purpose, benefits, key product features and specifications, pictures or illustrations, and contacts for further information.

If you would like to suggest a handwashing technology, please contact us at wsp@worldbank.org. For more information on enabling technologies, including related articles and case studies, please visit the Enabling Technologies page on WSP's website.
