Project Reference No.: 06-2014 RESEARCH TENDER CALL TENDER INFORMATION DOCUMENT Project Reference No.: 06-2014 Project Title: Understanding consumer behaviour in the usage of hand sanitizers and establishing their efficacy 1. Objective/Knowledge Gap Understanding consumer behaviour in the usage of hand sanitizers and establishing their efficacy 2. Background Hands serve as vectors for transmitting pathogens to foodstuffs and drinks and to the mouths of susceptible hosts. Hand washing is a key primary barrier to transmission of enteric pathogens by preventing cross-contamination. safe food advises that effective handwashing requires warm water, soap and friction (rubbing) to thoroughly remove dirt and bacteria, and that hand sanitizing gels should only be used when soap and water are unavailable. However, recent years have seen an increase in the availability and usage of hand sanitizing gels. 3. Approach This research project will involve mixed methods, including a questionnaire-based study to assess consumer behaviour in relation to hand sanitizers, as well as desk research to conduct a thorough review of the literature, including grey literature, on the efficacy of hand sanitiziers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
