As reported by PUNCH, the report clearly stated that one out of three healthcare centres worldwide do not have hand hygiene facilities at strategic points where patients and healthcare workers meet.

UNICEF WASH Director, Kelly Ann Naylor said, “Global response efforts to the COVID-19 pandemic have created an unprecedented time for hand hygiene. Yet progress remains far too slow for the most vulnerable, underserved communities.

“Hand hygiene cannot be viewed as a temporary provision to manage COVID-19. Further long-term investment in water, sanitation, and hygiene can help prevent the next health crisis from coming. It also means fewer people falling ill with respiratory infections, fewer children dying from diarrheal diseases, and more pregnant mothers and newborns protected from preventable conditions like sepsis.”
