Global Handwashing Day

October 15 is Global Handwashing Day

Washing your hands with soap before eating and after using the toilet can save more lives than any single vaccine or medical intervention, cutting deaths from diarrhea by almost half and deaths from acute respiratory infections by one-quarter.


On the Global Handwashing Day website you can find:

  • Global Handwashing Day planner’s tools

  • Handwashing information

  • Responses to frequently asked questions and

  • An interactive map showcasing Global Handwashing Day events from around the world.


The 2018 Theme is “Clean hands – a recipe for health.”
