On October 2005, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched the First Global Patient Safety Challenge “Clean Care is Safer Care”. A unique change model was created to engage and mobilize the world. Between 2005 and 2015, a total of 139 Ministries of Health have pledge their support to Clean Care is Safer Care and continue to take action to prevent healthcare-associated infections. Almost 20’000 healthcare facilities in 179 of the 194 country members of the United Nations have joined the campaign and millions of healthcare workers all around the world are applying the WHO strategy to improve hand hygiene in healthcare. Professor Didier Pittet, lead adviser of Clean Care is Safer Care and director of the WHO Collaborating Centre on Patient Safety, University of Geneva Hospitals and Faculty of Medicine, Geneva, Switzerland, is summarizing the main achievements of the programme over the past decade.
