Description: Reduction of health care-associated infections (HAI) in low- and middle income countries is hampered by inadequate supply of soap and water and the unavailability or high cost of alcohol-based handrubs (ABHR) for hand hygiene. In 2005, the World Health Organization (WHO) developed and pilot tested two ABHR formulations suitable for local production in health-care facilities. In 2011, an online survey evaluated feasibility, advantages, costs and barriers to local production of the WHO-recommended ABHR formulations.
