Water, Sanitation, & Environmentally Relevant Hygiene (WASH)
Hygiene refers to behaviors that can improve cleanliness and lead to good health, such as frequent handwashing, facial cleanliness, and bathing with soap and water. Many diseases can be prevented through proper hygiene practices, such as covering your cough and sneezes, washing hands after handling animals, and showering before you swim.
Careful cleaning, sanitizing, and storage of baby bottles and breast pump parts can prevent germs from contaminating milk.
