National Handwashing Awareness Week

December 3 – 9, 2023

National Handwashing Week is observed in the first week in December and is dedicated to helping people remain healthy one handwash at a time. Practicing good hand hygiene is a simple yet effective way to prevent infections. Washing your hands regularly can prevent the spread of germs.

CDC launched Life is Better with Clean Hands, a new national campaign designed to motivate adults to make clean hands part of their daily lives. The campaign resources below are designed to help raise awareness about the importance of handwashing at key times in both homes and public settings, such as before cooking or after using the bathroom.
