Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is there a 2014 Global Handwashing Day theme?

Yes! The theme for Global Handwashing Day 2014 is: Choose handwashing, choose health. This theme emphasizes that:

  1.  Handwashing is a choice that everyone can make multiple times a day.
  2. When people choose to wash their hands with soap, especially after using the restroom and before touching food, they are choosing to create a healthier environment, not only for themselves, but for those around them.
  3. Good hygiene practices must become a habit, which requires choosing to perform them on a regular basis. People should choose handwashing not only on Global Handwashing Day, but every day.  This positive and empowering message can be tailored to audiences, as appropriate.
