Global Handwashing Day

October 15 is marked as Global Handwashing Day. A global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an easy, effective, and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. This year the COVID-19 pandemic provides an important reminder that hand washing is one of the most effective and simplest ways to stop the spread of infection and also reinforce the message that hand hygiene is equally important in preventing diseases and protecting our health. The 2020 Global Handwashing Day theme is “Hand Hygiene for All.” This year's theme follows the recent global initiative calling on all of society to scale up hand hygiene, especially through handwashing with soap.
