WHO: SAVE LIVES – Clean Your Hands – No action today; no cure tomorrow

Every year, millions of patients are affected by infections transmitted during their stay in a health-care facility, where resistant germs are often transferred via the hands of health workers. Resistance to antimicrobials reduces or impedes the effectiveness of any treatment for the prevention and cure of infections. Hand hygiene is the most effective intervention to reduce transmission of infections and resistant germs. The World Health Organization recommends the 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene. Watch this video produced by WHO’s Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean to learn more about Hand Hygiene and the WHO 5 moments !
