The Power is in Your Hands!

We can’t stress this enough. There are three

reasons why you should wash your hands

regularly and thoroughly during travel (and at

home too).

1. Our hands carry thousands of

microorganisms such as viruses and

bacteria. Many are harmless but some are

responsible for illnesses like the common

cold, influenza, traveller’s diarrhea, hepatitis

A, and meningitis. Since we touch our face

hundreds of times a day – often

unconsciously – unwanted germs enter our

body through our eyes, mouth, and nose to

attack our immune system.

2. Everyday we come into contact with

surfaces or food contaminated by someone

who hasn’t washed their hands properly. For

example, un-wanted germs hitch a ride on

our hands when we exchange currency,

touch railings, use automated bank

machines, eat improperly handled or

undercooked food, as well as with poor body

and toilet hygiene.

3. Washing hands is proven to saves lives. Not

only are you protecting your health, you

have the power to break the cycle and

prevent others from getting sick. Proper

hand washing reduces the chance of

children, the elderly, and persons with

chronic health conditions or compromised

immune systems from developing health


Protect Yourself and Others

Here’s a reminder of when and how to wash

your hands properly.

• Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly

with soap and warm water (cold water is fine

too if there’s no warm water available),

singing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice. See proper

hand washing technique diagram below.

• No access to soap and water? Carry an

alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least

60% alcohol.

• Wash your hands every time they are dirty;

before preparing or eating food, after using

the toilet or changing a diaper; before

dealing with cuts, scrapes, or wounds; after

petting animals; and after handling garbage

or compost

• Keep your hands away from your face,

mouth, nose, and eyes.

• Do the sleeve sneeze if you don’t have a

tissue or handkerchief. If you use a tissue,

dispose of it immediately.

A Note on Mind and Body…

Managing travel stress by exercising (even just

stretching or walking) and getting the right

amount of sleep will also help you stay healthy.

Practicing good hygiene leads to being

comfortable and feeling good about yourself.

Since you may not find all the hygienic amenities

you need during your trip, consider packing

these items:

• Mints, gum, or mouthwash

• Facial cleansers

• No rinse body soap, castile liquid soap, or

hand sanitizer

• Extra tissue, toilet paper, and wet wipes

available in travel packs

• Feminine hygiene products

• Condoms to protect against sexually

transmitted infections

• A basic First Aid kit
