2013 Global Handwashing Day is October 15th – World Wash Up
October 15th, 2013 marks the 6th anniversary of Global Handwashing Day! Celebrating their 6th anniversary, the Global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing originally created Global Handwashing Day for children and schools, and today, it is celebrated by many organizations that promote handwashing with soap.
The 2013 theme is, “The power is in your hands,” empowering all of us with the ability to create healthier communities through proper handwashing.
This year’s goal:
- Foster a global culture of handwashing with soap
- Spotlight handwashing in every country
- Promote the benefits of handwashing
Germs and pathogens are easily spread through touch, hitching a ride on your hands. Good hand hygiene – washing hands regularly with soap and warm water – helps prevent the spread of illness, which is especially important during cold and flu season.
