Global Handwashing Day

Happy belated Global Handwashing Day! Although this auspicious day was officially on Sunday, October 15, it’s never too late to make thorough hand-washing part of your personal hygiene routine. INMED promotes hand-washing and proper food handling to prevent reinfection with intestinal parasitic worms after deworming treatment of children living in Peru. Researchers in London estimate that if everyone routinely washed their hands, a million deaths a year could be prevented. So, grab some soap, wash your hands and stay healthy like this cute little guy!
