The World Hand Hygiene Day

Hand-in-Scan @NUHS

Hand-in-Scan @NUHS

Every year we dedicate special attention to hand hygiene education and awareness on the 5th of May (no wonder it is easy to remember, just count your fingers on both hands). The World Health Organization’s initiative reached far in the recent years, but still room for improvement in the western countries and the developing world too. You can read more on the  program here:

WHO “SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands”

There are a couple of events going on around the globe, and we would like to draw your attention to a unique programme just about to start in Singapore:

  • 6-10 May: The National University Hospital (NUH) Hand Hygiene education and assessment program (for more info see our press release)

Check back on the coming days to get updates on the assessment. And of course, don’t forget to wash your hands!
