Driving hygiene behaviours: Essential elements of universal healthcare?

This event explores the role of hygiene behaviours as a component of a ‘new model’ of health system design.

Research event, Roundtable
22 June 2022 — 12:00PM TO 5:00PM
Chatham House 10 St James’s Square London SW1Y 4LE United Kingdom

COVID-19 has brought hygiene and, more specifically, the role it can play in our health, into sharp focus and further reinforced the fact that prevention is better than cure. However, despite hygiene being the preventive component of the global fight against infectious diseases, it has languished as a minority scientific and political interest for decades.

The Reckitt Global Hygiene Institute and Chatham House are convening experts within the global health community to develop reasoned positions on the role of upstream hygiene behaviours – and investment in them – as a component of a ‘new model’ of health system design that can be shared with global changemakers.

The event is by invitation only and under the CH Rule.
