Hand Hygiene Education in U.S. Healthcare Settings

Clean Hands CountOn any given day, one in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Practicing hand hygiene is a simple yet effective way to prevent these types of infections. 

To better protect patients from this ongoing problem, the CDC Foundation is partnering with CDC and GOJO to provide hand hygiene educational materials and tools for patients, healthcare providers and caregivers in U.S. healthcare facilities as part of the "Clean Hands Count" campaign. This campaign aims to address myths and misperceptions about hand hygiene, increase hand hygiene adherence among healthcare professionals and empower patients to play a role in their care by asking or reminding healthcare providers to clean their hands. For more information about the campaign, please visit CDC's website.

Childhood Immunization Champions Award Fund

The CDC Childhood Immunization Champion Award is an annual award given jointly by CDC and the CDC Foundation to recognize individuals across the United States who make a significant contribution toward improving public health through their work in childhood immunization. 

Vaccination is the best way to protect children against 14 serious diseases before they turn two years old, but not all children receive the appropriate vaccines according to CDC’s recommended immunization schedule. Champions work hard in their communities to make sure children are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases. The Champion Award honors those who are doing an exemplary job or going above and beyond to promote or foster childhood immunization programs in their communities.

Each year, immunization program managers for health departments across the country are encouraged to nominate one individual from their state, district or territory to receive the Childhood Immunization Champion Award. CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases confirms states’ recommendations and issues awards during National Infant Immunization Week, the last week in April. Award recipients—past and present—are listed on CDC’s website.
