WHO Global Survey

As announced by Professor Pittet, and as part of a year of activities in support of SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands 5 May and ten years of the WHO Clean Care is Safer Care program, the 2nd WHO Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework Global Survey starts on 1st June 2015.

The Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework provides a situation analysis of hand hygiene resources, promotion and practices within health-care facilities. After completing the Framework, facilities can also use and adapt the WHO Template Action Plans to implement plans for local improvement based upon the Framework results.

The 2nd WHO Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework Global Survey online data submission service will be open from 1 June 2015 until 10 September 2015.  Data submitted online to WHO will help to demonstrate progress with hand hygiene improvement across the globe and ensure action in support of patient and health worker safety stays high on everyone’s agenda.

For those facilities not yet registered they can do this at HERE OR an email can be sent to info@whohandhygienesurvey.org telling WHO a facility wants to participate.

The first results of this survey will be disseminated on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the WHO Clean Care is Safer Care programme on 13th October 2015. The 2015 survey findings will be compared with those obtained by WHO in 2011 and allows for invaluable monitoring of progress and evolution of the global situation of hand hygiene in health care.  You can find the results of the first survey undertaken in 2011 HERE
