We are crafting private –public partnerships to benefit primary Infection Prevention strategies around the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness. There is a growing list of collaborators, but more are needed to accomplish this simple solution to the complex problems of preventable infections. I helped create the Clean Hands Coalition on May 1, 2003 a public-private partnership of the CDC, FSIS, American Cleaning Institute, Handwashing For Life Forum, American Society of Microbiology, Henry the Hand Foundation and several universities around the country. We share ideas on monthly conference calls for many to utilize in order to promote and effect Infection Prevention strategies. If you are interested in joining or aware of other opportunities of a collaborative structure, please contact us at Handquarters. 513-769-HAND(4263).
