Happy Global Handwashing Day!

Washing your hands is now more important than ever. The pandemic is a stark reminder that handwashing is one of the simplest ways to reduce the spread of infections and diseases.

GDH Global Handwashing Day (GHD) is a global advocacy day. Its goal is to increase awareness about the importance of hand hygiene. This refers especially to handwashing with soap and triggering lasting change from policy-level to community-driven action.
