Hygiene is a concept related to cleanliness, health and medicine, as well as to personal and professional care practices related to most aspects of living. In medicine and in home (domestic) and everyday life settings, hygiene practices are employed as preventative measures to reduce the incidence and spreading of disease. Hygiene in its fullest and original meaning goes much beyond that to include all circumstances and practices, lifestyle issues, premises and commodities that promote a safe and healthy environment.
The principle of cooperation rather than competition is highly regarded by SSWARS, so its operation is open to any initiative from national, regional and international Organizations and communities, which serve for the same cause as that of SSWARS.
SSWARS has been able to sensitize and is still sensitizing communities especially in Kampala in areas of Mulago, Kyebando, and Bwaise among others on how to promote and improve hygiene through community outreaches, meetings and training. This has greatly improved personal hygiene among the residents of the above mentioned areas.
