This study was conducted in the rural area of Habiganj district, Bangladesh, among mothers of neonates and infants, other female caregivers, fathers, and traditional birth attendants. Given the high burden of neonatal mortality in Bangladesh and observational evidence that handwashing may substantially reduce neonatal mortality, this study aims to identify barriers to and motivators of handwashing among mothers and other caregivers in the perinatal and neonatal period.
