Fighting Healthcare-Associated Infections with Hand Hygiene

Anna von Porat
Global Communication Manager
SCA-Tork

As a market leader in healthcare hygiene solutions, Tork understands that the simple task of cleaning and drying hands at the right times and in the right way saves lives. Healthcare-associated infection (HCAI) is a major concern when it comes to patient safety. However, most infections are preventable.

From this perspective, every single initiative to support increased hand hygiene behaviour should be acknowledged, and on May 5th 2011, a major initiative will take place as the World Health Organization is once again issuing its annual call to action. Healthcare workers, managers, facilities and organisations throughout the world are invited to acknowledge and campaign for improved hand hygiene at the point of care to reduce healthcare-associated infections.

The programme has so far stimulated action at many levels, including Ministers of Health from 124 countries pledging commitment to reduce HCAI and support the work of WHO. For more information about the initiative, visit: http://www.who.int/gpsc/5may/background/en/

Tork Healthcare Solutions

As high standards are set in healthcare facilities, Tork aims to provide solutions that meet and exceed these standards in order to further support hand hygiene improvements. Tork is for example working together with the Chinese Ministry of Health and the British National Health Service. Tork hand towels and toilet tissue are used extensively in hospitals throughout the UK. Tork tissue products meet high standard in terms of softness, strength and cost-effectiveness. Hygiene-critical areas such as intensive care require delicate qualities that encourage good hand hygiene by being extremely absorbent and kind to the hands.
