A number of hand hygiene resources and tools have been developed to support health care facilities to improve hand hygiene in health care.
Institutions, facilities and organizations are encouraged to adapt the WHO hand hygiene tools and resources to their own needs. Here you can find examples of locally adapted tools.
The team has had a vast number of articles published in academic journals and other publications since 2005.
The team has undertaken numerous visits to pilot sites and hosted a range of meetings, both at WHO and abroad.
