Global Handwashing Day occurs annually on October 15. In 2016, more than 213 million people around the world rallied around the theme “Make Handwashing a Habit”.

As the driving force behind Global Handwashing Day, the Global Handwashing Partnership developed this Global Handwashing Day 2016 Report to tell the story of Global Handwashing Day celebrations and reach around the world.

This report:

  • Explores how the GHP equipped organizers through the delivery of its Global Handwashing Day tools
  • Demonstrates how action was mobilized in new, meaningful ways
  • Shares several Global Handwashing Day success stories
  • Highlights how to continue the momentum of promoting handwashing habits beyond October 15, and more.

If you haven’t already shared the results of your 2016 Global Handwashing Day campaign, we’d love to hear how you celebrated. You can email us at

We hope you find this report valuable. We look forward to celebrating with you in 2017!
