World clean hands day

October 15 - Global Handwashing Day. The decision to hold such a day annually was made by the UN General Assembly jointly with the UNICEF Children's Fund and the World Health Organization in 2008. 

The goal of World Clean Hands Day is to promote the need for frequent and proper handwashing among the world's population, as handwashing with soap and water helps to fight a wide range of infectious diseases.

Washing hands with soap is one of the simplest, most affordable and effective ways to prevent acute intestinal infections and other diseases, and therefore is one of the most important components of personal hygiene of every person.
