Listen to the 1-minute teaser of the Essential Talks Podcast above. A podcast shedding light on stigmas regarding hygiene and health.
We talk with people who have experienced these stigmas and experts all over the world about subjects such as incontinence, menstruation and hand hygiene.
The Essential Initiative Survey is a global survey in 15 countries around people’s personal views and behaviors around hygiene, taboos and stigma’s in a variety of areas. The new study will be released towards the end of September and in these podcast series we already highlight several of the key insights from this study and let experts give their views on the topics.
