Clean Care is Safer Care

SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands - WHO's global annual call to action for health workers


SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands 5 May 2017 - Fight antibiotic resistance - it's in your hands

Our calls to action are:

  • Health workers: “Clean your hands at the right times and stop the spread of antibiotic resistance.”
  • Hospital Chief Executive Officers and Administrators: “Lead a year-round infection prevention and control programme to protect your patients from resistant infections."
  • Policy-makers: "Stop antibiotic resistance spread by making infection prevention and hand hygiene a national policy priority."
  • IPC leaders: "Implement WHO’s Core Components for infection prevention, including hand hygiene, to combat antibiotic resistance.”


Each year the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands campaign aims to progress the goal of maintaining a global profile on the importance of hand hygiene in health care and to ‘bring people together’ in support of hand hygiene improvement globally.
