Handwashing: The Great Hygienic Habit


With 80% of all major diseases spreading through touch, simply washing our hands periodically through the course of the day with soap can immunize us against a plethora of health hazards. The Global Handwashing Day, observed 15th October every year, started as a campaign in 2008 with the vision to promote personal hygiene that can curb all kinds of respiratory and intestinal infections by 25-50%. The most effective way of washing our hands can be described in three major steps – (a) Wetting your hands with enough water. (b) Lathering for 20 seconds with soap. (c) And finally rinsing under running water.


1.4 million children every year don’t cross the age of five, often passing away under the clutches of diarrhoea and pneumonia that can otherwise be kept at bay through the simple practice of washing our hands with soap. As many as 1500 bacteria continue to live in every square centimetre of our skin that possesses the power to unleash dire health crises. Washing our hands with soap and water, a rather easy and affordable practice, helps us stay clear of countless health hazards. This campaign to spread awareness about the importance of hand hygiene and bring down child mortality rates received incredible traction with a mammoth 1,276,425 children in 2014 from various districts of Madhya Pradesh taking part in the handwashing programme to earn themselves a spot in the prestigious Guinness World Records.
