GLOBAL HANDWASHING DAY

Do you wash your hands for over 20 seconds with plenty of soap? Before and after eating? Global Handwashing Day is on 15 October and is a great opportunity for WaterAid to talk about all things handwashing - the simplest and most cost-effective way to avoid potentially fatal infections and diseases. Look out for the results of a revealing national survey of the UK’s handwashing habits, a fun Facebook quiz and much more.

 
On Global Handwashing Day we are also giving momentum to the Healthy Start health professionals campaign to get doctors, nurses and midwives around the world, in country programmes and member countries, to take action on the issue of lack of WASH in healthcare facilities. To support this campaign we have new content from healthcare centres in Liberia and Nigeria that will be available on Asset Bank soon.
