CDC-WHO partnership to Assess Hand Hygiene Infrastructure at Healthcare Facilities

The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) are committed to improving hand hygiene in healthcare facilities. An important aspect of this effort is facility self-assessments. Healthcare facilities can track their progress in hand hygiene promotion, plan improvements and set goals for hand hygiene improvement and sustainability through the use of the WHO Hand Hygiene Self-Assessment Framework.
