 CLEAN HANDS IN JAMAICA                    

"SHOUT OUT FOR CLEAN HANDS" 

Wash your Hands Often .... 


 HealthCare Marketing  (Jamaica) Ltd intends to relaunch this programme for            2016 - 2017.  This we believe is now critical with the growing crisis of 

H1N1 (Swine) Flu.

H1NI and the seasional flu virus are highly contagious and spread quite easily, making its presence felt in our highly populated areas of gathering. Transmission occurs mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing and touching contaminated surfaces or objects then touching the face (nose, mouth and eyes). 

2016-2017

Clean Hands in Schools

iWASH!


We did it in 2007-2008...

Let us do it again!

Educating Kids and Saving Lives


PUBLIC PRIVATE INITIATIVE  


 In 2007 Health Care Marketing became very concerned with hand hygiene and launched the Jamaican version of the "Clean Hands" programme.

The main goal of the programme was to communicate the importance of hand washing to kids at the primary level.

Another  aim of the “Jamaican Clean Hands” was to get children in school to wash and clean their hands as often as possible to help reduce the spread of common germs and virus in the school setting.

 The programme was well received in the school we visited across our island, Jamaica. Children were  educated on how , when and why they should wash their hands. 411 Clean Hands booklets designed specifically for our kids, Clorox and sanitizers from Purell were issued as tokens. Some schools were also supplied with Sanitizer dispensers and Clorox cleaners for class rooms and bathrooms. 

The children also participated in a poster competition using their own artwork to advocate clean hands.

Clean Hands booklets were created by all stakeholders and paid for by the Chase fund, a Government of Jamaica program.

2007 Clean Hands sponsors:
