Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: To assess the effectiveness of rinse-free hand washing for reducing absenteeism due to illness in preschool and school-aged children compared to no hand washing, conventional hand washing with soap and water or other hand hygiene strategies. To determine which rinse-free hand washing products are the most effective (if head-to-head comparisons exist) and what effect additional strategies in combination with rinse-free hand washing have on the outcomes of interest.
