WHO launches hand hygiene report

WHO has launched global “SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands” programme, highlighting the role of hand hygiene in preventing the spread of drug-resistant germs.

The campaign is in line with WHO’s recently-released report on Antimicrobial Resistance: Global Report on Surveillance. The report states that there are increasingly more types of bacteria which cannot be killed by antibiotics. If the clean practice of hand wash is adhered to, there could be up to a 24% reduction in the infection of methicillin-resistant Stap¬hylococcus aureus (MRSA).
