Time flies quickly. The National Day holiday is about to start. Many children and older friends are already impatient to go out and travel. I hope everyone must pay attention to travel safety and hygiene. After the long holiday, there will be a global absorption day that is closely related to our hand hygiene. So, do you know that 2021 is the first global handwashing day? The answer is 12th.
The 2009 Global Handwashing Day was initiated by the Public-Private Partnership to Promote Handwashing with Soap, calling on countries around the world to carry out handwashing with soap every October 15th. Initiated by the World Health Organization in 2009 and enacted on October 13 of that year, the purpose is to call on the world to strengthen hygiene awareness through the simple but important action of “washing hands” in order to prevent infection of infectious diseases.
For World Hand Hygiene Day 2021, WHO calls on health care workers and facilities to achieve effective hand hygiene action at the point of care. The point of care refers to the place where three elements come together: the patient, the health care worker, and care or treatment involving contact with the patient or their surroundings.
Purpose of Global Handwashing Day
The purpose of this activity is to cultivate and support the global and regional culture of handwashing with soap, pay attention to handwashing conditions in various countries, and increase publicity on the benefits of handwashing with soap or hand sanitizer. As one of the initiators of “Global Handwashing Day”, UNICEF actively promotes the handwashing campaign with children’s participation as the main part through its offices all over the world, calling on people to use actions to wake everyone up to wash their hands correctly, using soap or hand sanitizer Hand washing, health awareness of disease prevention; urge people to improve hygiene behaviors, especially to teach children to develop good hygiene attitudes and habits from childhood; advocate the government and the community to improve environmental hygiene, including hand washing facilities.
Only those who wash their hands regularly and thoroughly can protect themselves and others from infectious diseases. It is not only a matter of duration, which is meant to last at least 20 seconds, but also a matter of how you do it. For a hand washing event to be successful, sufficient soap and water must be used. The spaces between the hands and fingernails must not be forgotten under any circumstances. It is also essential to dry your hands thoroughly.
