World Hand Hygiene Day on the 5th of May

Hand Hygiene Day (5th of May) highlights the importance of hand hygiene in prevention of infectious diseases. Hand hygiene is done either by rubbing hands with alcohol based antiseptics (hand-rubbing) or by washing hands using soap and water (hand-washing). Ozioma Onyedıkachukwu Ezeofor, Faculty of Pharmacy student, whose thesis was about 'Awareness of hand hygiene among university students' in Microbiology, distributed the brochures she had prepared with her friends on 22nd of  May.  Ozioma showed other students how to do hand hygiene by scrubbing on the stand opened in front of CL building. In order  to have clean hands to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases, we should spend at least 20-30 seconds for hand scrubing done by alcohol based antiseptics and 40-60 seconds for hand washing done by water and soap. We must pay attention to touching every part of the hand in both types of hand hygiene. Hand hygiene is the simplest, least expensive and most effective strategy used for prevention of infections and limiting the transmission of microorganisms from person to person or from one surface to another.It is planned to create an opportunity on World Hand Hygiene day for the following years for increasing the awareness of importance of hand hygiene among EMU students.
