Handrub Initiative

15 years = 15 tons handrub

In Geneva, thanks to the collaboration of several partners, it is already possible to obtain alcohol-based handrub at very attractive prices on www.swisscleanhands.ch

In addition, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Clean care is Safer Care programme, the HUG TaskForce and Givaudan will offer 15 tons of alcohol-based handrub solution to Geneva companies from October 28, 2020, with the aim to encourage the implementation of simple hygiene and social distancing rules recommended by the FOPH and to motivate companies to be effective relays of these measures by protecting their employees.
