Hand hygiene

Visual resources


This short film was made for the International Day of Hand Hygiene organised by the World Health Organization in 2011 to raise awareness of the protection measures needed by medical personnel, as well as by volunteers, family, etc. The video shows bad working practice, namely different situations in which healthcare workers could pick up microorganisms and spread them around. It also shows good working practices; for example, a healthcare worker desinfecting his hands at several stations of his work.
