10-15-2018

Started in 2008 by the Global Handwashing Partnership, Global Handwashing Day is celebrated each year on October 15.

Global Handwashing Day raises awareness of the importance of handwashing and encourages action to promote and sustain handwashing habits, especially with children.

Recent studies done by the Center for Disease Control have shown that proper hand washing can prevent one in three diarrhea related sicknesses and one in five respiratory infections, such as a cold or the flu.

Not only does this day highlight the importance of washing hands, but the importance proper hand washing. A recent study done by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that American’s don’t wash their hands correctly 97% of the time.

Handwashing is a simpliest (and easiest!) way to ensure overall health.
