The Global Handwashing Partnership (GHP) was established in 2001. Our member organizations today include government agencies, multilateral organizations, corporations, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions.
The GHP works to develop and share knowledge to strengthen handwashing implementation. We also work to 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.
We work towards our vision by strengthening the hygiene enabling environment and helping handwashing programs move from knowledge to action. We welcome others who also work to address the global hygiene challenge to join us!
