Environmental Health and Hygiene

Hygiene is a primary step of good health to protect ourselves and others from illness and keep us safe by maintaining good health. It includes practices to prevent spread of diseases. Examples of Hygiene include environmental cleaning, hand hygiene, sterilization of equipment, and safe disposal of waste, water and sanitation. Since cleaning processes (e.g., hand washing) remove infectious microbes as well as dirt and soil, they are often the means to achieve hygiene.

Hygiene is a set of practices performed for the preservation of health. The terms cleanliness (or cleaning) and hygiene are often used interchangeably, which can cause confusion. In general, hygiene mostly means practices that prevent spread of disease-causing organisms.
