Hand Washing Awareness Week

Many people think that washing hands frequently is just a waste of time. However, they are unaware that our hands are host to many bacteria and viruses that can cause infectious diseases.

Dr. Khalid Idriss Hospital (KIH) started its Hand Washing Awareness Campaign last 2011 to advocate in preventing the spread infectious diseases. KIH joins the world in celebrating the Hand Washing Awareness every month of December. This awareness campaign aims promote awareness to all people the important advantage of hand washing to prevent themselves from getting infected by a number of dangerous ailments. Likewise, it aspires to educate young students by visiting schools, teaching them the proper hand washing technique as an essential factor for maintaining good health.

Our Infection Control Department in coordination with the Infection Control Committee is organizing various hospital-wide activities to raise awareness among our loyal customers and hardworking employees on the prevention of diseases through proper hand hygiene. This is part of KIH’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
