Cochrane published a rapid review about whether cleaning hands with ash reduces the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases in areas where soap is not widely available. It was important to get this evidence out widely, so Cochrane First Aid translated the rapid review findings into six languages.
Cochrane First Aid worked with volunteers, and partnered with a number of organizations, to help to share evidence about handwashing with ash with lay people who educate the public in low-income countries. They also created a Blogshot (short visual summary) and used social media and their newsletter to share this review with a wide audience.
