Global Handwashing Day (GHD) was initiated in 2008 during the International Year of Sanitation. The first GHD was a success around the world – over 80 countries and some 200 million children participated. The aims of the day are to shine a spotlight on the state of handwashing in every country, raise awareness of benefits of handwashing with soap (HWWS) and support a global and local culture of handwashing with soap. Global Handwashing Day was launched by the global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing with Soap, a coalition of international, private and academic organisations. [authors abstract]
