What’s the problem? People wash their hands much more frequently if sinks are conveniently located and desirable.
In fact, if people have to walk out of their way to reach a hand washing facility, then they’re unlikely to use it at all. Most people would only wash their hands if a sink is within 25 feet and in direct sight. (1)
A considerable number of schools,healthcare facilities, aanganwadi centres and homes around the world have inadequate handwashing infrastructure.
