College of Nursing participates in Global Handwashing Day on October 15

Handwashing Day is global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. Statistics indicated that more than 3.5 million children, lower than 5 years, lose their lives due to diseases such as diarrhea and acute respiratory system, where 40% of diarrhea cases controlled through washing hands with soap especially after using toilets and before eating. 

In terms of its community responsibility, College of Nursing is going to celebrate Global Handwashing Day in Community College and College of Sharia.
