The government of Bangladesh has a commitment to ensure safe environment through promoting personal hygiene practices as mentioned in the strategy document. However, there is a lack of baseline information on hygiene practices among different segments of the population and regions. The overall objective of this national hygiene survey was to establish a nationally representative baseline status of hygiene situations related to knowledge, facilities and practices in the area of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) to be used for programmimg and resourcing.
