Health in your Hands

 

Hygienic practices such as handwashing with soap can reduce the risk of diarrhoea by half. With diarrhoea being the second biggest killer of children under five years old worldwide, Global Handwashing Day on 15 October is a day dedicated to increasing awareness about the importance of handwashing with soap as an easy, effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.
