The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with support from GOJO and the CDC Foundation Launched the Clean Hands Count Campaign on May 5, 2016 – World Hand Hygiene Day.

The Clean Hands Count Campaign is a national educational campaign to improve hand hygiene in healthcare settings to reduce the number of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). According to the CDC, on any given day, one in 25 hospital patients has at least one HAI.

Infections that patients get in the hospital can be life-threatening and hard to treat, but improving hand hygiene is one of the most important measures and key strategies healthcare workers can take  to prevent transmission of infections.

The campaign features a variety of communications for healthcare workers, patients and family members including infographics, posters, factsheets and brochures.


Join the CDC in promoting hand hygiene with the Clean Hands Count Campaign using the hashtag #CleanHandsCount on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
