Clean Care is Safer Care

WHO Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework

Health-care facilities can track their progress in hand hygiene resources, promotion, and activities, plan their actions and aim for improvement and sustainability through the use of the WHO Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework.

The Framework is a tool with which to obtain a situation analysis of hand hygiene promotion and practices within an individual health-care facility, according to a set of indicators. It also acts as a diagnostic tool, identifying key issues requiring attention and improvement. Repeated use of the Framework will allow documentation of progress with time.

Global survey 2011

From April to December 2011 health-care facilities around the world were invited to participate in a global survey based on the completion of the Framework. Health-care facilities submitted their Framework results to WHO through a dedicated web site. The first analysis of data has been performed now and the summary results are available.
