Diversey supporting WHO's World Hand Hygiene Day

Diversey Care, as a leading supplier of cleaning and hygiene solutions, is partnered with the World Health Organization through the "Private Organizations for Patient Safety" initiative, to promote and provide better hand hygiene. On the 5th of May we celebrate World Hand Hygiene Day, the World Health Organization’s annual campaign, with the slogan “Save Lives: Clean your Hands”. The WHO’s Five Moments of Hand Hygiene are pivotal to making better hand hygiene a reality and represent a framework for healthcare workers, including cleaning staff, to follow.


Hand hygiene is the main solution to stop the spread of infections, caused by either personal contact or touching contaminated surfaces. This should therefore be central to any healthcare cleaning operation and there can be no compromise.
