The Asian Development Bank (ADB), Solomon Water, and the Government of Solomon Islands have launched a hygiene promotion campaign on the radio.

Elmar Elbling, Unit Head of ADB’s Solomon Islands Pacific Country Office, represented ADB at the event on 19 April, which saw the partners launch a hand-wash song by popular local artist, Tibon Billy Oge with hygiene messaging, live on air at the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation in Honiara.

A statement from ADB said it collaborated with the Solomon Islands Government and Solomon Water to identify opportunities to build a resilient¸ inclusive¸ and equitable water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The song will continue to be aired on radio and shared on social media.
