Global Hand Washing Day

Global Handwashing Day is a campaign to motivate and mobilize millions around the world to wash their hands with soap as a key approach to prevent disease. The event was created at the Public Private Partnerships for Handwashing's Annual World Water Week in 2008, which was held in Stockholm from August 17th to 23rd. Global Handwashing Day was officially implemented on October 15, 2008, a date appointed by UN General Assembly.

The theme for Global Handwashing Day's inaugural year was "Focus on School Children." In more than 70 countries, the members pledged to get the maximum number of school children handwashing with soap.

The tradition continues today in order to help children around the world prevent infection and the spread of disease by learning to wash their hands.
