Simple steps to ensure healthy hand hygiene habits.

Simple steps to ensure healthy hand hygiene habits:

Hands are the most common way of spreading germs

Wash your hands with soap and running water - a simple splash under water is not effective in destroying germs

Really lather the soap to make sure you are getting all the necessary germ protection required

Wash your hands for approximately 30 seconds to really get rid of the harmful germs that cause infection – think up a song to pass the time, the happy birthday song is a great example

Remember to wash your hand properly whenever they are dirty and especially before handling food, after using the bathroom/ changing nappies and in the shower/ bath

Hand washing with soap is the most effective and inexpensive way to prevent diarrhoeal and acute respiratory infections, which take the lives of millions of children in developing countries. Together, they are responsible for the majority of all child deaths

Highest germ anxiety periods include: seasonal changes, back-to-school and festivals/ occasions when groups of people gather – make  healthy hand hygiene a habit  to keep you protected throughout the year
