The 2018 campaign theme, ‘Clean hands- a recipe for health’, encouraged everyone to make handwashing with soap a part of every meal. This year, Global Handwashing Day celebrants reached out through events, social media, and traditional media to help spread the word about handwashing, food hygiene, and nutrition. Global Handwashing Day reached more than 570 million people with messages about the importance of handwashing with soap!
Read the 2018 Global Handwashing Day report to find links to Global Handwashing Day tools, a summary of participation in Global Handwashing Day, and success stories from organizations who celebrated the Day. The report also highlights ways to promote handwashing beyond October 15th.
The Global Handwashing Partnership thanks everyone who celebrated Global Handwashing Day this year, and we encourage you to keep advocating for handwashing with soap! We will be launching our 2019 theme in March, so please watch this space for more news.
