A simple act of washing hands with soap can reduce the incidence of deadly diarrhoea and pneumonia that kill more than 3.5 million children under the age of five every year across the globe.

Hand washing with soap – particularly at critical moments, including after using the toilet and before handling food – is a key cost effective and life-saving intervention. Research in several developing countries illustrates that lack of soap is usually not the barrier – with the vast majority of even poor households having soap at home – rather, the problem is that soap is rarely used for hand washing.
