ABSTRACT
The article reports on a 2009 decision which the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District in New South Wales made to adopt the National Hand Hygiene initiative, discussed at the web site www. hha.org.au, to improve community health care worker hand hygiene. A discussion of an auditing program which was developed to assess compliance with the initiative, and of an improvement in hand hygiene which was seen among community health workers as a result of the initiative, is presented.
