Global Handwashing Day, October 15

Social Media Toolkit

The Global Handwashing Day social media campaign aims to create a global buzz about handwashing and to inspire increased promotion and practice of  handwashing globally.

Social media tools reach millions of individuals, businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and government officials around the world. Social media tools allow Global Handwashing Day celebrants to broadcast information about the importance of handwashing and this healthy habit among a large, diverse audience. Handwashing is important for everyone, everywhere, so please tailor the ideas included in the Global Handwashing Day Social Media Toolkit to suit your organization’s audience and needs.

This toolkit includes:

  • Information about the 2016 Global Handwashing Day Theme: “Make Handwashing a Habit!”
  • Sample messages for spreading the word about Global Handwashing Day on Twitter, Facebook, and blogs
  • Shareable images, such as those below, with facts about handwashing that can be posted on social media channels
