SARAYA Manufacturing (U) LTD, the leading Manufacturer of antibacterial Hand Disinfectant/Sanitiser in Uganda, would like to inform the general public that we are still in production of the Alsoft V brand of Hand Sanitiser.
We are however very dismayed by the recent social media and mainstream media reports about the recent astronomical rise in the price of the Alsoft V Hand disinfectant.

Our product can be found through our Distributor, Laborex (U) Ltd, (in Namanve Industrial Park), Our Whole Seller Top Medical (William Street) and Joint Medical Store Nsambya & SARAYA Kenya Limited for the Kenyan Market.
We encourage our customers to access our products through our authorized Distributors and credible retails outlets and strongly warn those who are counterfeiting the SARAYA Alsoft V brand to stop it immediately.
Legal action is being undertaken against those who have so far been apprehended.
Our factory and entire team are working tirelessly to meet the demand and we urge the general public to be patient with us as we try to restore normalcy in this situation.

Saraya Co., Ltd. is proud to support the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands campaign, which is celebrated yearly on May 5th. Those familiar to trends in healthcare hygiene and patient safety will know that May 5th is the official day of celebration and affirming commitment to patient safety through hand hygiene and the use of alcohol hand rub to prevent infections and the spread of pathogens in healthcare settings.
SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands is part of the larger program started in 2005, WHO Clean Care is Safer Care, pioneered by Professor Didier Pittet of the Geneva University Hospital in Switzerland. Clean Care is Safer Care was created as a foundation to cultivate a global understanding of the importance of patient safety and hand hygiene to reduce infections in the hospital. The project is dedicated to gaining the acknowledgment of governments in order to promote development of patient safety policies and programs on the country level. Since the program began 10 years ago, hospitals in over 171 countries have committed to SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands.
Unclean practices and insufficient hand hygiene in hospitals account for unexpected treatment, extended stays and many deaths throughout developing and developed countries worldwide. In 2002, 99,000 deaths were attributed to healthcare associated infections (1). The burden is great, but only until recently has the real effects of insufficient hand hygiene been understood. These numbers are climbing due to antibiotic-resistant organisms.
Since 2009, SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands has been celebrated annually on May 5th, represents the five fingers of both hands, or 5-5. This campaign is a ground-level initiative alongside the country-level Clean Care is Safer Care program, that enrolls the support and enthusiasm of healthcare workers around the world to generate awareness and support for reducing healthcare associated infections. "System change" and creating a culture of awareness regarding hand hygiene are pillars of the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands. This year the WHO is using social media to create awareness via photos posted by supporters displaying the phrase, "#safehands". Images of supporters can be viewed at http://www.cleanhandssavelives.org/safehands/pics.php.
Professor Pittet is also challenging hospitals to record their own attempt at beating the Guiness record-holding hand hygiene relay this year. Information can be found on Youtube as well as the Clean Care is Safer Care website. SARAYA, the leader in healthcare hygiene in Japan, is proud to support and publicize this year's May 5th SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands campaign, and our offices worldwide are excited to participate in May 5th activities at local hospitals. SARAYA'S website for May 5th is available at http://worldwide.saraya.com/5May/ for downloadable posters and a screensaver to support this year's activities.
As on of the WHO's initial members of the POPs committee, SARAYA is dedicated to the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands, and the active role the group takes in bringing hand hygiene to developing countries. The goal of POPs is to create collaboration between businesses for the sustainable good of spreading knowledge and opportunities for hand hygiene to developing countries. President Yusuke Saraya of Saraya Co., Ltd. has kept this policy in the creed of the company. "The only way to achieve change and a sustainable society is through collaboration between businesses and the non-profit sector. POPs reflects this ideal, just as SARAYA believes this to be the basis for its CSR projects," said Yusuke Saraya while visiting Cambodia to witness the signing in of the Ministry of Health's pledge to become a supporting member of the SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands Campaign.

We are very pleased to inform you that we have opened a new company, Saraya Cambodia in Phnom Penh as our newest global office.
Cambodia's economy has been growing remarkably in recent years at an annual average of more than 6%. Foreign investment is ever increasing and there has been a construction rush for office buildings, hotels, and shopping malls in Phnom Penh.
On the other hand, dysentery is a leading causing of death for impoverished people especially children under 5 years old. To improve this situation, it is urgently required to establish the practice of hand washing with soap.

Saraya is proud to announce its success at the APSIC 2013 International Congress of Infection Control that took place from April 10th-13th in Shanghai, China.

Infection Control is a rapidly evolving field within the Health Care sector in the Asia Pacific Region. The Congress brought together some of the best renowned international and regional professionals as well as many more key players in the field of infection control and infectious diseases. The major focus of the Congress for 2013 was on "Strategic Practices for Combating Microbial Resistance". Participants and visitors shared knowledge and expertise on Infection Control to foster safety in medical settings.
Saraya Shanghai held its first infection control seminar for customers and clients in China and celebrated with a following dinner party. We were greatly honored have Dr. Assadian from the Medical University of Vienna to give his presentation, "Updated Criteria for Alcohol Based Hand Rub and Dispensers in Europe". This presentation was very relevant to the APSIC meeting, and discussed research on dispenser and hand disinfectant evaluation and improving their effectiveness through user compatibility.
Alcohol based hand rub was heavily discussed throughout the Congress and evidently stated as the key to infection control. Especially with sudden resurgence of H7N9 in China, visitors were keen to take reliable precautions. A number of people visited Saraya booth to learn more about our latest products and technologies in the field of infection control. More surprisingly, a Shanghai Television Production came to the Saraya booth and interviewed our CEO as the president of the leading company in Infection Control working to prevent avian flu infection. As a member of APSIC, the Saraya team further strengthened their commitment to our principles in hygiene and innovation.

The conference will include a wide variety of seminars on the topic of Infection Control such as antibiotic resistance control management, hand and environmental hygiene etc.
Both of those conferences will also be an opportunity for all key players including Saraya in the industry to exhibit their latest products and innovations in the field of Infection Control.
With the very rapid emergence of antimicrobial resistance throughout the world those past few years, Hospital acquired infection have become more and more difficult to deal with once they occur.
