Yesterday Was Global HandWashing Day

Dear Diary:

October 15th marked the day dedicated to handwashing.  It seems strange to have a day devoted to that but the original organizers hoped to achieve world-wide acceptance of this practice in an effort to slow down major infections.

It was started in 2008 at a conference of World Water Week.  The program hoped to motivate people around the world to wash their hands with soap and water as it has shown that this simple task eliminates much of the bacteria causing respiratory diseases or other infections.  Originally it was meant to focus on children to reduce infant mortality but it now encompasses all age groups. 

This year, more than 70 countries will have participated in promoting this day.

Good Night for now.
