Clean Hands Count on
World Hand Hygiene Day...and Every Day!
Today, May 5, is World Hand Hygiene Day, the World Health Organization's annual global call to action for healthcare providers to practice hand hygiene appropriately.
As part of this year’s efforts, CDC has two new tools for healthcare providers: a Clean Hands Count video and a hand hygiene education course (coming May 22 – stay tuned!). The Clean Hands Count campaign offers brochures, fact sheets, posters, and infographics for patients and healthcare providers.
Here are a few things you can do to participate in World Hand Hygiene Day:
|1||Watch and share the new Clean Hands Count video YouTube link: https://youtu.be/MzkNSzqmUSY Alternate link: https://www.cdc.gov/|
|2||Order free Clean Hands Count print materials|
Order Clean Hands Count stickers, brochures, factsheets, and posters by visiting: https://wwwn.cdc.gov/pubs/
Note: CDC’s fulfillment house is able to process a limited number of orders each day. If you see that a particular material is temporarily unavailable, please try again another day. We apologize for any inconvenience.
