Global Handwashing Day is 15th of October
Global Handwashing Day is 15th of October. The aim of the day is to raise global awareness on the importance of handwashing with water and soap at home, in the community, and around the world. Studies have shown that handwashing can prevent 1 in 3 diarrheal illnesses and 1 in 5 respiratory infections, such as a cold or the flu. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic provides an important reminder that handwashing is one of the simplest ways to prevent the spread of any virus and ensure better health outcomes overall.
