Hygiene is so basic yet so difficult for people to practise and we don’t know why, says Dr. Sheillah Simiyu, Associate Research Scientist at the African Population & Health Research Centre in Kenya. Simiyu, who has dedicated her career to water, sanitation and hygiene, is one of five researchers selected to be the first recipients of the Reckitt fellowship. This three year program aims to support the next generation of evidence at the intersection of health and hygiene and is run by the Reckitt Global Hygiene Institute.

Cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis have a lot to offer hygiene research, according to Dr. Ian Ross, a research fellow in health economics at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Such information, he explained, is critical when it comes to allocating resources to the most efficient interventions and reaching more people with the same money. Despite this, very little research in this area exists, he said.

There are a lot of different menstrual-related needs that people have and the default is to provide tangible products, but more information is needed about what people actually want and need. With support from the Reckitt fellowship, Dr. Julie Hennegan, research fellow at Australia’s Burnet Institute, plans to generate research on just that.
