Using behavior change tactics to reduce the spread of COVID?19 in Wisconsin
Return to Listing
Public health campaigns to help control the COVID-19 pandemic in Wisconsin have focused on critical prevention behaviors like social distancing and regular hand washing. Unfortunately, increasing infection rates suggest that these initiatives have not been completely effective to date. Hand washing compliance rates are often alarmingly poor, with global estimates as low as 19%. Hand washing has also become more difficult due to reduced availability of proper hygiene materials like hand soap and paper towels at Wisconsin retailers.
This project aims to improve hand hygiene using simple, inexpensive, and powerful behavior change intervention tactics to reduce the chances of COVID? 19 spreading to patients at high risk for serious illness or medical complications across Wisconsin communities.
