Accelerate action together. SAVE LIVES – Clean Your Hands – with this slogan, the WHO runs its annual campaign celebrating World Hand Hygiene Day on the 5th of May and SARAYA invites you to join it with us, using our original posters available for download below.
Why is it so important? Because the most effective way to fight against infections is to prevent them from spreading, hand hygiene plays an important role in it. Whether it be preventing infections from spreading in our daily lives or preventing healthcare-associated infections in healthcare settings, what we can do is increase our knowledge and follow appropriate recommendations (for example, Your 5 moments of hand hygiene) to create a safe and responsible culture together.
This 2023-year campaign reminds us that strong and engaged communities of healthcare workers, policy makers and civil society organizations (CSOs) can accelerate and sustain action at the point of care to keep people safe and healthy from harmful infectious diseases. Driven by their passion, values and strong social justice agendas, and often in close proximity to the communities they serve, CSOs can spearhead and accelerate change at local, national and international levels.
Our 5th of May 2023 original SARAYA posters aim to raise awareness about the importance of hand hygiene, not only in healthcare settings but also in public areas. Proper hand hygiene practices can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and promote overall health and well-being. These posters serve as a reminder that hand hygiene is everyone's responsibility and may have an impact on public health.
Apart from the above, SARAYA contributes to healthcare settings every year by producing useful products for implementing infection prevention and control and providing training and knowledge to healthcare workers, patients, and their families around the world.

Promote the concept, actions and products related to 5 May 2023 using the slides included in the advocacy presentation and annual campaign toolkit.
