This October 15, over two hundred million people gather together all over the world and celebrate Global Handwashing Day. Why such a big focus on handwashing? This simple action, when practiced regularly can significantly reduce the risk of illness and death from diarrheal disease and pneumonia.
The theme of this year’s celebration, “Clean Hands-A Recipe for Health,” focuses on the links between handwashing and food – including food hygiene and nutrition. This reminds us to make handwashing a part of every meal.
