Clean hands save lives
Global Handwashing Day was created by the Global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing in 2008 to:
- Foster and support a global culture of handwashing with soap.
- Shine a spotlight on the state of handwashing in every country.
- Raise awareness about the benefits of handwashing with soap.
Global Handwashing Day was originally created for children and schools, but can be celebrated by anyone promoting handwashing with soap. Each year, over 200 million people are involved in celebrations in over 100 countries around the world. Global Handwashing is endorsed by a wide array of governments, international institutions, civil society organizations, NGOs, private companies, and individuals.
