Unite for Safety, Clean your Hands
It’s almost our favourite time of the year – World Hand Hygiene Day!
We are proud to once again support World Hand Hygiene Day, 2022 on 5th May. This years theme focuses on recognizing that we can add to a facility’s climate or culture of safety and quality through hand hygiene. It also aims to promote that a strong quality and safety culture encourages people to clean their hands at the right times and with the right products.
When a healthcare facility’s “quality and safety climate or culture” values hand hygiene and infection prevention and control (IPC), this results in both patients and health workers feeling protected and cared for. People at all levels need to believe in the importance of hand hygiene and IPC to save lives. We all play a part in achieving the appropriate behaviours and attitudes towards hand hygiene and IPC.
SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands brings people together in support of hand hygiene improvement globally. This year we are encouraged to unite, talk and work together on hand hygiene for high quality safer care everywhere.
Campaign theme: A health care “quality and safety climate or culture” that values hand hygiene and infection prevention and control.
Slogan: Unite for safety: clean your hands.
Campaign objectives: To recognize that people of all levels should work together to influence the culture/climate through clean hands knowledge and behaviour, to meet the common goal of safety and quality in the health care organization.
