Developed in partnership with WaterAid UK, the Briefing Note highlights key factors to consider when developing strategies to improve hand hygiene in health-care settings and provides a summary of current evidence on barriers and facilitators to making these improvements. It includes a discussion of ‘next steps’ to ensuring effective and sustainable changes are made, and the importance of a multifaceted approach to improving hand hygiene compliance.
