SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands
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.
