World Hand Hygiene Day

World Hand Hygiene Day

The World Health Organization's SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands global campaign, launched in 2009 and celebrated annually on 5 May (World Hand Hygiene Day), aims to maintain global promotion, visibility and sustainability of hand hygiene in healthcare and to ‘bring people together’ in support of hand hygiene improvement around the world.
