Inaugurating the campaign, State Project Director of SSA E.P. Mohandas said "Proper washing of hands could prevent diseases. Students are being told to wash hands immediately after coughing, traveling outdoors, before and after meals."

"Heads of schools have been asked to carry out a campaign to inculcate the habit of hand washing to prevent bacterial diseases", he added. Rotary International and Kerala Child Rights Observatory are also partners in the campaign.
