Scaling up community health clubs: an appeal to funding agencies

Studies with rural communities in Zimbabwe have demonstrated the impact of hygiene promotion through community health clubs as an effective means of achieving hygiene behaviour change, creating demand for sanitation, and taking it to scale.
