About Us

Hand Hygiene Australia (HHA) is funded to implement the National Hand Hygiene Initiative (NHHI) by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC), as part of the Healthcare Associated Infection Program.

The HHA team are headed by Professor Lindsay Grayson as Director, and Ms Sally Havers as National Project Manager. The National HHA team members are based in Melbourne, with local HHA coordinators currently appointed in Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.

HHA works with all of the States and Territories, as well as the Private health care sector to maximise the success of the NHHI, including the establishment of a standard national system of outcome measures to assess the effectiveness of the NHHI.
