What we and our children need to know: health and hygiene awareness
Expanded Title:This guideline document presents the fifth in a five volume series aimed at addressing the question of how best South Africans can protect themselves from water-related microbial diseases. It provides practical guidelines and awareness of hygiene and sanitation practices at the household level from the point of view of the family and the range of actions which the family members need to undertake in order to protect themselves from infectious and emerging diseases. If every member in the family understands the means how to prevent infections through proper hygiene practices and improve hygiene behaviour, the transmission of diseases will be eliminated and healthier life styles will be achieved. Several sources world wide have been used in the preparation of this guideline document. Other aspects (and actions) related to action to promote hygiene are also included.
