Global Handwashing Day 2016

Celebrated annually on October 15, Global Handwashing Day was founded by the Global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing and provides an opportunity to design, test, and replicate creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands with soap at critical times. Global Handwashing Day is designed to:

  • Foster and support a global and local culture of handwashing with soap
  • Highlight handwashing around the world
  • Raise awareness of the benefits of handwashing with soap

This year’s Global Handwashing Day theme is “Make Handwashing a Habit!” For handwashing to be effective, it must be practiced consistently at key times, such as after using the restroom or before contact with food. While habits are developed over time, this theme emphasizes the importance of handwashing as a ritual behavior for long-term sustainability.
