National Hand Washing Day

Gloves Go Global supports and promotes National Hand Washing Day because of our commitment to preventative health care. Today we can bring attention to one of the most simple, and effective ways to stay healthy –hand washing. Gloves Go Global aims to protect health care workers and the patients they serve through providing medical gloves for use in examinations and surgical settings. An important step in preventing the spread of germs and disease is hand washing, even when using gloves.

 

Hand washing with soap is one of the first lines of defense in the fight against disease.  With proper techniques, studies show that the incidence of diarrheal disease can be cut by nearly half and greatly reduces the occurrence of intestinal worms.  In an area where diarrhea can quickly become life-threatening and parasites are a constant battle, it is imperative that providers and medical volunteers emphasize health education.
