Potential Hygiene Motivators and De- Motivators among Rural Communities in the Eastern Cape of South Africa pp. 263-271 $100.00
Authors:  (Nancy Phaswana Mafuya, Port Elizabeth, South Africa)
Abstract:
This study describes potential personal, household and community hygiene
motivators and de-motivators among 494 villagers in the Eastern Cape. Over 50% were
26-50 years, male, married, employed and had secondary education. Individual
interviews were conducted using an interview schedule with open ended questions. More
than 50% viewed access to regular water supply as a hygiene motivator and the lack
thereof as a de-motivator. Personal hygiene (30%), refuse/solid waste disposal (14.2%),
safe human excreta disposal (28.5%) and safe liquid waste disposal (12.0%) facilities
were viewed as hygiene motivators and the lack of these as de-motivators. Hygiene
education was identified as a motivator for personal (7.5%), household (7.6%) and
community (7.8%) hygiene and the lack of it as a de-motivator. Protected household
water storage facilities (10.2%), money to purchase both personal hygiene items (10.5%)
and domestic hygiene detergents (8.4%) were seen as hygiene motivators and the lack of
these as de-motivators.
