Established in 2001, the Global Handwashing Partnership (GHP) member organizations today include government agencies, multilateral organizations, corporations, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions.
The GHP aims to drive forward, develop, and share knowledge to strengthen handwashing implementation, build political commitment, and trigger action to promote handwashing at local, national, and international levels, including through advocacy initiatives, such as Global Handwashing Day.
We are guided by a global vision that proper handwashing with soap at critical times will be universally recognized, promoted, and practiced as fundamental to good health. In order to work towards this global vision, the GHP has a partnership vision which is to improve health globally by acting as the preeminent global advocate and thought leader for handwashing with soap. The GHP’s activities and objectives are aligned with and executed in support of these visions.
We work towards our vision through strengthening the hygiene enabling environment and helping handwashing programs move from knowledge to action. We welcome others who are also working to address the global hygiene challenge to join us!
