Thousands of people die every day around the world from infections acquired while receiving health care. Hands are the main pathways of germ transmission during health care.

This brochure explains how and when to practice hand hygiene.

person involved in direct or indirect
patient care needs to be concerned
about hand hygiene and should be
able to perform it correctly and at
the right time.

soap and water.
Wash your hands with soap and water
when hands are visibly dirty or visibly
soiled with blood or other body fluids

pathogens is strongly suspected

, hand washing with
soap and water is the preferred means.
