The Global Handwashing Partnership

Upcoming webinar: “Clean Hands Prevent Cold and Flu–What you need to know to protect yourself through good hygiene!”

January 23, 2017

Did you know there is no inoculation to prevent you from the common cold? While the flu vaccine can reduce the risk of infection by 60%, they are just one step you can take to stay healthy. Cold and flu infections result in over 160 million missed schooldays and $16.3 billion of earnings lost each year, but they can be prevented through good hygiene practices, such as handwashing with soap.
