Clean Care is Safer Care

Information sharing

Are hand hygiene initiatives ongoing at your health-care facility? Have you created an Action Plan? Has hand hygiene improved at your facility? Have your hand hygiene improvements reduced health care-associated infection?

Please share your experiences and expertise with us. Your experiences could help other health-care workers across the world improve hand hygiene and save lives.

The World Health Organization (WHO) Patient Safety team would be delighted to learn of the hand hygiene initiatives at your health-care facility, whatever your starting point.
