Stage 4: Transition to Scale

Referenced as an example in WHO & UNICEF's WASH technical guidance for COVID-19 (April 2020), HappyTap’s product saves water and makes handwashing as convenient as possible. Implementing purpose-built handwashing stations is a ‘no regrets’ intervention, and can be aligned with broader public health guidance from the WHO. HappyTaps have been set up around the world -- from healthcare facilities in Papua New Guinea to schools in Northern England in order to support frequent handwashing recommended by health authorities. HappyTap is working with international NGOs and development partners to rapidly equip schools and other public facilities while concurrently developing a sustainable consumer market for portable handwashing stations.
