This annual global campaign supports WHO's effort to improve hand hygiene in health care and thus prevent often life threatening healthcare-associated infections (HAI). It was launched in 2009 as a follow-up to WHO's First Global Patient Safety Challenge: Clean Care is Safer Care work. As of April 2012, 127 Ministers of Health have committed to reduce HAI and to support the work of WHO, while over 40 countries and areas have started hand hygiene campaigns.
