Through the sharing of experiences, they are able to offer support, encouragement and comfort to the other group members and receive the same in return. Some sessions we included HIV/AIDS Testing Services where a provider talked on personal hygiene and HIV/AIDS modes of transmission and preventive measures.  Many diseases and conditions can be prevented or controlled through appropriate personal hygiene and by regularly washing parts of the body and hair with soap and water.

Good body washing practices can prevent the spread of hygiene-related diseases like cough, flu, diarrhea among others.

Personal hygiene benefits:

  • Good hygiene saves lives
  • Effective hand hygiene can reduce sick days and lost productivity
  • Hand hygiene could be crucial in the fight against antibiotic resistance
  • Great personal hygiene makes you a great role model
  • Personal hygiene makes you more attractive to other people
