World Hand Hygiene Day 2019 communications toolkit

18 Nov 2021

The resources below are designed to help organisations promote World Hand Hygiene Day, 5 May 2019. The World Health Organization (WHO) is calling on everyone to be inspired by the global movement to achieve universal health coverage.  

Since 5 May is a Sunday this year, it is recommended that organisations choose a day during the week of 6-10 May to celebrate and promote hand hygiene, or celebrate the entire week.
