What is Global Handwashing Day?

Global Handwashing Day (GHD) is a campaign to motivate and spur people to improve their habits related to hand hygiene, washing them with soap in the course of their day.

This initiative, held on 15 October of every year, aims to promote the importance of proper handwashing in order to prevent the transmission of disease and the onset of infections. It is a gesture that can really save lives.

For more information, you can consult Global Handwashing Day’s official website.


“The European Tissue Symposium (ETS) fully supports the initiative and underlines the importance of proper hand drying alongside washing in completing the whole process and minimising the spread of infection.”
