La Journée Mondiale du lavage des mains est célébrée chaque année le 15 octobre. Il s’agit de promouvoir les enjeux liés à l’hygiène et au lavage des mains au savon comme un moyen efficace et abordable de prévenir et propager les maladies.
Dans le cadre de la pandémie de coronavirus (COVID-19), le lavage des mains est plus vital que jamais. Mais il reste hors de portée pour des milliards de personnes qui n’ont pas accès à de l’eau propre et du savon.
Vous trouverez ci-dessous quelques activités pour l’occasion :
- Webinair de l’USAID « Twenty Seconds that Saves Lives and Economies: Handwashing and Water in a Time of COVID-19 » – October 14, 2020 – 9 am-10:30 am EDT (New York Time)
Without reliable access to water billions of people are unable to heed the advice of public health officials to wash their hands to prevent COVID-19 spread. Please save the date for a Global Handwashing Day-themed event on October 14, featuring Acting USAID Administrator John Barsa and Global Water Coordinator and Deputy Assistant Administrator Jennifer Mack. The event will highlight the importance of handwashing, the challenges facing the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector, and USAID’s WASH response to the pandemic.
Invited speakers from the World Bank, Sanitation and Water for All, and other global partners will join USAID leadership and mission representatives as they discuss efforts to fight the current pandemic and set the stage for a lasting and equitable expansion of access to water and hygiene systems.
