Clean Care is Safer Care

Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework global survey

WHO is inviting health-care facilities around the world to submit their Framework results online, as part of the WHO Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework global survey. The objective is to obtain a picture of hand hygiene progress worldwide and to identify which areas of hand hygiene promotion and development need further improvement on the global scale.
