Today is World Hand Hygiene Day, an annual reminder of the importance of keeping your hands clean.

For World Hand Hygiene Day 2021, the World Health Organization calls on health care workers and facilities to achieve effective hand hygiene action at the point of care.

“The point of care refers to the place where three elements come together: the patient, the health care worker, and care or treatment involving contact with the patient or their surroundings,” according to the WHO.
