This group of 9 case studies that have been collected under the heading 'Hygiene activities' form part of a project on mainstreaming gender in water projects to bring issues of social exclusion in the practical development of infrastructure in low-income countries into the core of project planning and design. They have been kept short and edited slightly to bring out the engineering issues. Topics covered are: Responding to community initiatives; Assessing impacts of projects by gender; What are ideas about hygiene based on?; Hygiene education for women?; Using a wide variety of media; Communication for change; Targeting men; Health records; and Same disease, different causes.
