Breaking the chain of infection - Preventing spread of infections in home and everyday life

The aim of this simple learning resource is to help you to visualise how infections are spread and how hygiene helps to break the chain of infection.

Infectious diseases exert a heavy toll on our health and prosperity, but much of this could be prevented through good hygiene. Reducing this burden of infection cannot happen without reducing the spread of harmful microbes in our homes and everyday lives. Preventing infections must be everyone’s responsibility

Every effort has been made to write this material in simple non- technical language, so that it can be understood by everyone. This resource is available at:
