Guide to local production: WHO-recommended handrub formulations

This guide to local production of WHO-recommended handrub formulations is separated into two discrete but interrelated sections:

  • Part A provides a practical guide for use at the pharmacy bench during the actual preparation of the formulation. Users may want to display the material on the wall of the production unit.
  • Part B summarizes some essential background technical information and is taken from WHO Guidelines on Hand Hygiene in Health Care (2009). Within Part B the user has access to important safety and cost information and supplementary material relating to dispensers and distribution.

In addition, you can find below a tutorial video of local production of alcohol-based solution (according to the WHO formulation).
