Today is #HandHygiene Day!

Hand Hygiene is one of the most effective actions you can take to reduce the spread of pathogens and prevent infections, including #COVID19.

Join the #SafeHands challenge and practice the right technique.

Good #HandHygiene plays a critical part in fighting #COVID19!
The virus primarily spreads through droplet & contact transmission: by touching infected people, contaminated objects or surfaces. Your hands can spread virus to other surfaces & to your 👄, 👃 or 👀 if you touch them.
How to handwash?

Use 🧼 and 💦 for at least 40-60 seconds

#Midwives are essential to the provision of quality of care, in all settings, globally. We thank 👏 ALL midwives for their efforts to save lives of moms and babies.


DYK: #Midwives educated and qualified to international standards can provide almost 90% of services needed by mothers and newborns.


DYK: Women who receive quality midwife-led care experience 20% reduction of preterm births, are 16% less likely to lose their baby, and report higher satisfaction with their birth experience.
