‘Accelerate action together,’ is the theme of World Hand Hygiene Day 2023. Save Lives, Clean Your Hands,’ Dettol BSI’s effort focuses on educating customers that only a ‘Swachh India’ can be a Swasth India. The Banega Swasth India – Swasthya Mantra podcast connects and sensitizes the millennial and Gen Z audience that consumes information through new-age platforms by emphasizing the importance of cleanliness, sustainable living, and the need to instill good hygiene practices, such as hand washing, in their daily lives.
