Hygiene is incredibly important – especially for young children because if they become infected with a bacterial or viral agent that causes diarrhea they can become dehydrated and seriously ill very quickly. The best way to prevent these infections is basic – handwashing with soap and water. This is why Global Handwashing Day is so important – children all over the gobe need to be aware that washing their hands after going to the toilet and before meals isn’t just good manners – it is vital for disease prevention.

Make sure you spread the word – wash your hands with soap and water to prevent diarrhea. Let’s prevent millions of hospital admissions for young children with acute diarrhea by improving hygiene at home and at school!
