Flies 1 – one of a series of animations that illustrate the f-diagram - a graphical representation of the links between "faeces and faces" that cause disease, and how those links can be broken by sanitation and hygiene interventions - like the use of toilets and hand-washing with soap to reduce sickness and benefit family and community health.

“Flies 1” shows how when someone defecates in the open flies touch the faeces and carry it to uncovered food leading to sickness. The animation is then reprised but this time the faeces are buried – using the ‘cat method’, hands are washed and the food is covered.

The videos are intended to promote improved sanitation and hygiene by engaging the key motivations for hygiene behaviour change – disgust, nurture and affiliation. They are designed to be used in schools, clinics, community outreach programmes – such as Community Led Total Sanitation / CLTS or Essential Family Practices – or integrated into mass media campaigns.
