GLOBAL HANDWASH DAY
Global Handwashing Day is a campaign to motivate and mobilize people around the world to improve their handwashing habits. Washing hands at critical points during the day and washing with soap are both important. Global Handwashing Day occurs on 15 October of each year.
Celebrated annually on October 15, Global Handwashing Day was founded by the Global Handwashing Partnership, and is an opportunity to design, test, and replicate creative ways to encourage people to wash their hands with soap at critical times. The main motto of this day was to raise awarenessof handwashing with soap as akey to approach and prevent the diseases.
