Proper hand washing technique was demonstrated to students, reiterating the message on basic hygiene with focus on non-pharmaceutical approaches in protecting oneself against infectious diseases.

The awareness and advocacy drive were facilitated by JICA PNG health sector officers. Utilising the simple handwashing cartoon titled, “Let’s Wash Hands Together”, an Information, Education and Communication (IEC) tool was drawn by a Japanese cartoonist, Inoue Kimidori, and translated into 34 languages around the world, including Tok Pisin.
