Make Handwashing a Habit – Celebrate Global Handwashing Day

Cheryl Abernathy

Did you know that Saturday, October 15 is Global Handwashing Day? Celebrated annually, Global Handwashing Day was founded by the Global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing in 2008. In that year, over 120 million children around the world washed their hands with soap in more than 70 countries.

Global Handwashing Day is dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. Diseases can be dramatically reduced by the simple act of properly washing your hands, and today, over 200 million people are involved in celebrations in over 100 countries around the world.

As a company dedicated to infection prevention, Sempermed has made it our mission to provide our customers with protection. Proper handwashing techniques provide the first line of defense against the germy world we live in.
