Clean Your Hands  Kick out the Germs

Hand Hygiene is the single most important measure to prevent infections.  In 2005 Hong Kong has pledged support to the World Health Organization (WHO)’s First Global Patient Safety Challenge: Clean Care is Saver Care by actively promoting hand hygiene in both health-care setting and in the community.  From 2010 onwards, Hand Hygiene Awareness Day is marked annually on 5 May in Hong Kong, in support of the WHO’s SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands initiative which aims to raise the public awareness of good hand hygiene.

This year, the call to action by WHO highlights the importance of hand hygiene in combatting antimicrobial resistance (AMR).  Their newly launched message is: No action today; no cure tomorrow – make sure the WHO 5 Moments are part of protecting your patients from resistant germs.
