7 things you don’t want to share
Hand hygiene remains the single most effective way to prevent healthcare-associated infections and has saved millions of lives in the last years worldwide. But many people forget to clean their hands and keep spreading bacteria. There are things you just don’t want to share, like the pin code for your credit card, your location when you’re away from home, your toothbrush or used medical gloves. You can easily keep your hands clean – avoid sharing diseases. ECDC supports WHO’s annual – Save Lives: Clean Your Hands – global campaign, 5 May.
Share this video, not diseases!
Each year on 5 May, the annual “SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands” global campaign is part of a major global effort led by the World Health Organization (WHO) to support healthcare workers in their efforts to improve hand hygiene in healthcare settings. The campaign aims to demonstrate that hand hygiene helps reducing healthcare associated-infections and increases patient safety. The 2015 campaign focused on the role of hand hygiene in reducing the spread of antimicrobial resistance.
I created the concept, the storyboard, and all the graphics for the animation. The production was managed by David Enbom.
