Hand hygiene in healthcare has saved millions of lives in the last years worldwide and remains the single most effective way to prevent healthcare-associated infections. Nevertheless, many people forget to clean their hands and keep spreading bacteria. There are things you just don’t want to share, like the pin code for your credit card, your location when you’re away from home, your toothbrush or used medical gloves. Why share diseases when you can easily keep your hands clean?
ECDC supports WHO’s annual “SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands” global campaign, that takes place each year on 5 May. Share this animation, not diseases! #safehands #handhygiene
