World Hand Hygiene Day

May 5

Awareness Event

World Hand Hygiene Day

Hand hygiene is part of infection prevention and control (IPC) measures. Practicing good hand hygiene is critical to achieving quality of care and patient safety across all levels of the health system.

WHO calls on everyone to be inspired by the global movement to achieve universal health coverage (UHC), i.e. achieving better health and well-being for all people at all ages, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.

Infection Prevention and Control, including hand hygiene, is critical to achieving UHC as it is a practical and evidence-based approach with demonstrated impact on the quality of care and patient safety across all levels of the health system.
