Diversey Care Holds Art Competition as Part of Save Lives: Clean Your Hands Campaign


Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division has launched an art competition as part of the World Health Organization (WHO)'s Save Lives: Clean Your Hands campaign, a global, annual WHO campaign designed to highlight the importance of hand hygiene in combatting antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and is celebrated with World Hand Hygiene Day on May 5.

The contest includes two categories. Participants will either create a piece of art out of a hand-shaped template that can be downloaded from the Diversey Care website or submit a photo capturing hands. The art should convey the theme: “creating a better way for life through hand hygiene.” The participants with the most creative submission in each category will receive an iPad. A team winner will also be awarded a lunch/dinner and educational materials regarding hand hygiene.   

“Our participation in the ‘Save Lives: Clean Your Hands’ campaign is another example of our ongoing collaboration with the WHO,” says Dr. Ilham Kadri, President of Diversey Care.  “We have worked together on many projects over the years with the goal of creating a better way for life for current and future generations. We are pleased to work with the WHO to promote the importance of hand hygiene.”

All of the art received will be added to designs created by Diversey Care employees, customers and business partners. These murals will be displayed in the reception areas of Diversey Care local offices to demonstrate Diversey Care’s commitment to hand hygiene and support of the WHO. Submissions will be accepted from May 5 through May 31, 2014.

In addition to Diversey Care’s participation in the “Save Lives: Clean Your Hands” campaign, Diversey also supports the WHO’s “Five Moments of Hand Hygiene” and offers a complete range of hand care products that are simple to use and highly effective.
