The 2023 Global Handwashing Day theme is “Clean hands are within reach.” This year’s theme highlights the progress that has been made around hand hygiene commitment and action in recent years, while also calling for more concerted efforts to ensure hand hygiene targets are met. When everyone comes together to scale up hand hygiene, clean hands are within reach.
We are excited that you are interested in celebrating Global Handwashing Day!

The full guidelines for using the logo are available here.
