Fifty-seven mothers in Indonesia were involved in a face-to-face health education programme which encouraged hand-washing with soap.
The intervention spanned 4 months and comprised fortnightly visits by 2 community organizers, who supplied free soap.
Two years after the intervention, 79% of mothers were still using hand soap, despite the fact that they now had to buy it themselves.
The community seemed to be benefiting from a sustained reduction in diarrhoea episodes due to improved hygiene practices.
