The 2020 Global Handwashing Day theme is “Hand Hygiene for All.” This year’s theme follows the recent global initiative calling on all of society to scale up hand hygiene, especially through handwashing with soap. This year’s theme reminds us that we must work toward universal access and practice of handwashing with soap for now and for a healthy future. No matter your role, you can celebrate Global Handwashing Day.
We are excited that you are interested in celebrating Global Handwashing Day!
If this is your first year celebrating Global Handwashing Day, we recommend these resources:
Yes! The Global Handwashing Day logo can be downloaded here. The logo can only be used in a way that is directly associated with Global Handwashing Day (October 15) and by organizations who are in some way supporting the vision of this day, namely: “to promote a global/local culture of handwashing with soap”. The full guidelines for using the logo are available here.
Yes! Please let the GHP what activities you are planning ahead of time by completing this form. We will then add your event to our index allowing us to know what events are planned globally. This can also help us connect you with potential partners. After your event, please upload pictures and a report to the interactive Global Handwashing Day map.
One way to find Global Handwashing Day activities near you is to reach out to similar organizations. This can provide an opportunity to collaborate with like-minded organizations. You can also contact the GHP to see if others in your region have registered an event.
While the GHP is unable to provide funding for specific Global Handwashing Day events due to overwhelming global demand, there are many ways to secure funding for Global Handwashing Day activities or materials. Collaborating with other organizations is one way to reduce the cost of events.
