Global Handwashing Day

October 15th is Global Handwashing Day! This year, the Global Handwashing Day theme focuses on the links between handwashing and food --- including food hygiene and nutrition. Handwashing is an important part of keeping food safe, preventing diseases, and helping children grow strong. Our tagline, Clean hands --- a recipe for health, reminds us to make handwashing a part of every meal.

Here are a few ways you can make a difference this Global Handwashing Day:

---Wash your hands with soap at critical times, especially before eating, cooking, or feeding others.

---Model good handwashing behavior, and remind or help others to always wash their hands before eating.

---Make handwashing part of your family meals.

---Establish places to wash your hands in the household, in your community, in schools, workplaces, and in health facilities.

---Promote effective handwashing behavior change in research, policy, programs, and advocacy.

Download our infographic to learn more about this year's theme, and stay in touch with the Global Handwashing Partnership as we develop new materials for this year's Global Handwashing Day.

Global Handwashing Day is a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases. Learn more about Global Handwashing Day, and access tools and materials, at CLICK HERE
