Hand hygiene:

  1. Even where there is a piped water supply, the tap handle represents a possible path of infection. Where there are known to be particularly dangerous pathogens in a population (e.g. Ebola), a ball valve whose arm is held up by a bungee cord and is pulled down by a treadle board is good technology.
  2. Where there is no piped supply, I recommend Tippy Tap (www.tippytap.org). Construction manuals in several languages at www.tippytap.org/build-a-tippy-tap-manual. I suggest a relatively long treadle board to keep feet clear of splashes.
