Healthcare-acquired infections are a growing concern, and hands are the most common source of pathogen transmission1. When 3M approached the challenge of hand hygiene, we knew that in order for any product to be effective, it would also need to be gentle enough to promote repeated and frequent use. Over 10 years after the original 3M™ Avagard™ surgical hand antiseptic was launched, we continue to add new hand hygiene formulations to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections. We want to provide you the effective support you need for this persistent challenge.
POPS participants help spread the word about the importance of clean hands in health care, supporting the WHO recommendations.
