How this will help

I pledge to wash my hands frequently, to promote clean hands, hand washing and provision of clean handwashing (education and infrastructure) worldwide.

RATIONALE: The most common way germs are spread is by people's hands. Germs are often harmless but they can also cause illnesses such as colds, flu, and tummy bugs.

Washing your hands properly with soap and warm water is the single most important thing you can do to help reduce the spread of infections and help protect you, your family and those around you.


The most powerfull thing you,your health care team and your visitors can do to prevent infections is also the most simple.
Everyone needs to wash their hands. • Wash your hands. You need to make sure that your hands are clean.


Lo más importante que usted, su equipo de cuidado de salud y sus visitantes
pueden hacer para prevenir las infecciones es también lo más sencillo. Todos
deben lavarse las manos.
• Lávese las manos. Asegúrese de que sus manos estén limpias

Portugal/Brazil :

A atitude mais eficiente que você, a equipe de saúde e os visitantes podem tomar
para evitar infecções é também a mais simples: todos precisam lavar as mãos.
• Lave as mãos. Você precisa ter certeza de que suas mãos estão limpas. Lave-as
regularmente com água e sabão ou utilize um desinfetante para as mãos à base
de álcool.

Tambien/Also consider possible child endangerment from toxic hand sanitizer... when washing with soap, wash for a longer period of time than usual (2 minutes.)
