Hand hygiene

Hand hygiene is everyone’s business!

Our hands can harbour millions of germs, most of which are harmless. However, practising good hand hygiene can prevent some pathogens from spreading. These germs can cause infections requiring antibiotics, and contribute to the creation of superbugs. 

Adopting strict hand hygiene standards is fundamental to prevent infections and antibiotic resistance. 

A pamphlet with hand hygiene tips and techniques is available on the website of the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux
