We are an active partner to Global Handwashing Partnership who works to save children’s lives and improve health by promoting handwashing with soap. These days, we realize more than ever that washing hands can help you prevent from getting infections and even save lives.
This year’s theme is ‘Hand Hygiene for All’ and on this site you will find lots of insights, tips and links to more information about proper handwashing.
Check this video with Carolyn Berland, our Senior Scientist on the importance of proper hand hygiene for health and every day hygiene.
In this global websurvey, we gather insights from general public from ~15,000 respondents in 15 countries aged 16-85 years. The most recent Essentials Initiative survey covers a wide variety of topics from sustainability, public hygiene, incontinence and menstruation, and general health stigma’s. This study highlights attitudes, behaviors and mindsets around a broad range of hygiene and health areas. The field research was carried out Dec 2019 to Jan 2020, and was complemented in July 2020 with a deep dive in 10 countries around hygiene and health questions around the Corona pandemic.
Essity and its brand Tork are advocates for hand hygiene in the critical moments as determined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Good hand hygiene has a big influence on health and well-being of our loved ones for everyone. We aim to inform people about the critical moments of handwashing and proper handwashing methods with water and soap, preventing over-use of disinfectants, sanitizers and handwashing when this is not needed
