We believe information about products and services that could benefit people should be made available to consumers to help them make informed decisions about their health care. Therefore, we try to provide accurate and reliable information by working with different fact-checkers to review articles for factual accuracy, relevance, and timeliness. A team of qualified and experienced fact-checkers rigorously reviewed our content before publishing it on our website. At E-health, we rely on the most current and reputable sources cited in the text and listed at the bottom of each article. Content is fact-checked after it has been edited and before publication.

The Hygiene Improvement Project (HIP)Hygiene Improvement Project (HIP)

HIP is part of the next generation of USAID’s environmental health projects. HIP is designed to work at scale, focusing on behavior change to improve child health outcomes. The project is working at scale by engaging multiple stakeholders and partners from different sectors, using a variety of interventions, and integrating hygiene into health and non-health programs such as HIV/AIDS, nutrition and food security, and education. HIP offers USAID programs new tools, approaches and a behavior-centered focus to reduce diarrheal disease.

HIP intends to reduce diarrheal disease morbidity by improving three hygiene practices: proper hand washing with soap or acceptable substitute, safe disposal of feces, and safe storage and treatment of drinking water at point of use. HIP’s behavior change strategy requires addressing all three components of USAID’s Hygiene Improvement Framework (HIF): accessing hardware, products and technologies; promoting hygiene; and creating an enabling environment.
