18 FORUM May 5: World Hand Hygiene Day It cannot be stressed often enough: consistent hand hygiene is one of the most effective measures against infectious diseases, both in clinical as well as public and private settings. International initiatives, such as the annual ‘World Hand Hygiene Day’ on 5 May, aim to make hand disinfection a routine part of everyday life. ‘Seconds save lives – clean your hands!’ reads the motto that the World Health Organization used to mark this year‘s ‘World Hand Hygiene Day’ on 5 May. The message is clear: a few seconds can be enough to save lives, especially if these seconds are ‘invested’ in meaningful activities such as a regular and correct hand disinfection! Our campaign: stickers & online game HARTMANN/BODE joins the WHO again to support the World Hand Hygiene Day – this time with a motivational campaign aimed at caregivers in outpatient and clinical settings. Following the WHO motto, our slogan is: ‘Your focus: clean hands at the point of care/point of use – seconds save lives’. In other words, we want to communicate that the caregivers literally ‘have lives in their hands’.
