SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands – WHO’s global annual campaign

The World Health Organization (WHO) now has an extensive library of materials to support your efforts to improve hand hygiene, including tools for system change, training and education, evaluation and feedback, workplace reminders, and institutional safety climate. 

WHO hand hygiene self-assessment framework is a tool intended to:

  • Assess the level of progress of health-care facilities with regards to infrastructures, resources, actions, commitment and achievements, in order to ensure optimal hand hygiene practices;
  • Facilitate development of an action plan for facilities’ hand hygiene improvement programs; and
  • Identify key issues requiring attention and improvement and to document progress over time through the repeated use of the Framework.
