Staying Healthy IV


Once again, we are celebrating GLOBAL HAND WASHING DAY launched in 2008, this annual event is one of the ways public and private partners, and other stakeholders seek to raise awareness to this very fundamental and highly significant contributor to our overall health and wellbeing. Global hand washing is therefore celebrated on the 15th of October, every year, to remind everyone, particularly, our children of the importance of regular hand washing using soap. It is an annual event, backed by the Global Public - Private Partnership for Handwashing with Soap with several founding members.

This year, the theme is: “CHOOSE HANDWASHING, CHOOSE HEALTH.” This theme emphasizes that:

  1. Hand washing is a choice that everyone can make multiple times a day.
