Clean Care is Safer Care

Registration update - countries or areas

As of 1 April 2014, a total of to 16 667 hospitals and health-care facilities in 170 countries or areas have registered their commitment to hand hygiene as part of the global campaign – SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands.

This map of the world, last updated 26 February 2014, helps you see how registrations are progressing and highlights number of health-care facilities registered for SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands, adjusted by population per country.

Fully adjusted estimates based on total number of health care facilities per country are not available and the estimates above may not fully represent the actual health-care facility coverage in each country.

The list below, last updated 1 April 2014, sets out the countries or areas from where hospitals and health-care facilities have registered.

At the beginning of 2009, registrations opened for all hospitals and health-care facilities around the world to show their interest in, and support for this new initiative to promote greater awareness of the importance of hand hygiene at the point of care.

If you have already registered for SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands there is no need to register again each year.

We aim to gather new health-care settings joining especially from countries that have LOW or NO registrations.
Please help us achieve new registrations from at least 5 new countries!
