World Hand Hygiene Day

May 5

This day, declared by the World Health Organization (WHO), encourages patients and their family members to join health workers in their efforts to practice good hand hygiene.

According to WHO, every year, hundreds of millions of patients around the world are affected by health care-associated infections. More than half of these infections could be prevented by caregivers properly cleaning their hands at key moments in patient care.
