Clean Hands Count for World Hand Hygiene Day – May 5

In 2016, the CDC introduced the Clean Hands Count campaign to promote hand hygiene in healthcare settings. This year, we are excited to release a new promotional video for healthcare providers and launch a new hand hygiene education course (coming later in May – stay tuned!).

Here are a few things you can do to participate in World Hand Hygiene Day on May 5:

Sometimes we don’t clean our hands as often as we should. It takes dedication, mindfulness, and time. Our clean hands count now more than ever.
