Behaviour Change and the Science of Habit

The theme for Global Handwashing Day 2016 is “Make Handwashing a Habit.” What better time to invite a habit expert, Dr David Neal, to speak with us about the Science of Habit, and to have a discussion around the implications of this science on behaviour change activities (for handwashing and more)?

On Thursday, 20 October, Dr Neal joined us for a conversation about science- and research-based principles for creating better initiation and maintenance of handwashing change. We had a great time of Q&A, and Mary DeCoster, Food for the Hungry’s Senior Specialist for Social and Behavioral Change Programs, reflected on how this science can strengthen our efforts to promote behaviour change.
