Hands of Health, Across the Nation

Antabax, an antibacterial personal care range and the Ministry of Health Malaysia joined forces for the second consecutive year to raise awareness and accelerate handwashing behavior change on a national scale through the 1Malaysia Hand Hygiene Month campaign, a mammoth health preparedness program that will reach more than 3 million people this year.

Themed Hands of Health Across the Nation, the campaign is believed to be among the largest public-private hand hygiene campaigns ever undertaken in the nation with the purpose of reducing hand-borne communicable diseases and preparing the nation ahead of possible epidemics.

The Ministry of Health Malaysia, Antabax and MAHEO (Malaysian Association of Health Education Officers), supported by Hospital Sungai Buloh, 10 private hospitals, transport hubs Terminal Bersepadu Selatan and Semasa Sentral, more than 3,500 food and beverages outlets and 28 schools nationwide will target the young, healthcare professionals, transport and tourism frontliners as well as those involved in food preparation and service as they are often at high risk of contracting and transmitting communicable diseases linked to hands.

Malaysian-made Antabax, a trusted and innovative antibacterial personal care brand that offers a complete range of antibacterial products that promotes a healthier and more hygienic lifestyle for the whole family has been championing hand hygiene since the A(H1N1) pandemic in 2009.
