Central American Handwashing Initiative
The Central American Handwashing Initiative (CAHI) is a great example of a PPP that involves a number of partiesâ€”public and privateâ€”working together to produce a public benefit. The CAHI brought together soap companies, government ministries, international donor organisations, non-governmental organisations, and the media in three Central American countries to promote handwashing with soap to prevent diarrheal disease.
