Global Handwashing Day

Every October 15th marks Global Handwashing Day, a dedicated occasion to promote the significance of handwashing with soap as a crucial measure in disease prevention.

The CDC actively participates in Global Handwashing Day to underscore the critical role hand hygiene plays in maintaining health, especially in preventing food poisoning. On this day, numerous local, national, and international organizations collaborate to organize awareness campaigns, workshops, educational programs, and demonstrations, all aimed at emphasizing the importance of handwashing with soap and water.
