May 5th is World Hand Hygiene Day
Seconds save lives – clean your hands!
CDC joins the World Health Organization (WHO) in observing World Hand Hygiene Day. Today and every day, we want to remind everyone that practicing good hand hygiene, such as handwashing and using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, is a simple yet effective way to help prevent the spread of germs and protect against serious infections.

The Clean Hands Count campaign offers patient and provider educational materials available in English and Spanish. These resources are intended to empower patients to ask healthcare providers to clean their hands and to guide healthcare personnel in the importance of providing patients with clean care by cleaning hands often.
Clean Hands Count
Visit CDC’s Clean Hands Count for educational materials in English and Spanish. We also encourage you to watch Project Firstline’s new Inside Infection Control video on hand hygiene.
