In Cambodia, many rural households don’t have proper handwashing facility with soap and water. The importance of daily hygiene practices is often underestimated. Global Handwashing Day (GHD) is a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness about the importance of hand hygiene. The 2021 GHD theme is ‘Our Future is at Hand – Let’s Move Forward Together’. The unprecedented nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to highlight the critical role hand hygiene plays in disease transmission. Therefore, the 2021 theme was a call to action to address the neglect of hand hygiene investments, policies, and programs once and for all.
