Official Launch of Saraya Hand Disinfectant Manufacturing in Africa

We are proud to announce that our Africa office, Saraya East Africa Co., Ltd., began manufacturing operations in Uganda, Africa, this March. The factory will be producing alcohol hand disinfectant for use in Uganda's hospitals and clinics, country-wide.

Saraya launched the Wash a Million Hands Project in Uganda in partnership with UNICEF Japan to improve hand washing access and education to children and mothers in Uganda in an effort to save lives lost due to poor hygiene. During the project we realized that the hygiene environment in medical facilities also need support. The 100% Hospital Hand Hygiene Project was established in 2013 to reduce healthcare associated infections in Uganda. One of the goals of the project is to create a local alcohol disinfectant manufacturing business. Fortunately, Uganda has local sugarcane production which is can be used to make alcohol locally. With locally procured ingredients, we were able to create a sustainable hand disinfectant that is priced appropriately for the local healthcare facilities while maintaining Japanese technology, quality and know-how.

Saraya East Africa Co., Ltd. is determined to expand our sustainable social business projects as well as solve social challenges of Africa through alcohol disinfectant manufacturing by creating jobs, encouraging business and improving healthcare.

Agreement Reached for Taking Control of Malaysia Sanitation Company

SARAYA Co., Ltd.

However, with the rapidly developing ASEAN market leading to an increased awareness in health and hygiene, SARAYA expects increasing growth in manufacturing and sales for the area. Malaysia, strategically centered in the area, is an ideal area to lead development for ASEAN business, and a vital reason for considering the purchase of the Goodmaid Group, which has established manufacturing, sales and logistic networks.

In the future, the Goodmaid Group will be run by SARAYA Hygiene Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. and focus on strengthening growth locally and for other SARAYA group companies around the world by contributing SARAYA's technological expertise to Goodmaid, creating a network of business solutions for strengthening sales and competitiveness.

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.

An epidemy of acute Ebola hemorrhagic fever has swept across the Western part of Uganda since the month of July. The disease causes patients to bleed from all body parts and leads to death in 50-90% of cases. Fear of the disease spreading have dramatically increased not only in Uganda but also internationally where the evolution of the situation is carefully being monitored. According to the WHO, there has been as of August 3rd, 53 patients suspected to have contracted the virus, out of which 16 already died.

Saraya and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), based on a request from Ministry of Health, donated on August 1st, alcohol hand disinfectants to the Ministry of Health of Uganda. The alcohol hand disinfectant have then been distributed to healthcare facilities in the Kibaale district where cases of the disease have already been confirmed for preventing further infections among medical staff and people in hospitals.

Saraya is proud to announce its participation in the WHO Private Organizations for Patient Safety platform. The platform was set up on May 5th, 2012; the same day of the annual WHO Campaign "Save Lives: Clean your Hands".

This platform is a new organization set up as part of the WHO Clean Care is Safer Care program to promote hand hygiene as a key tool in the fight against nosocomial infections in healthcare facilities. The platform is a database shared by the WHO and all the key industry players involved in healthcare hand hygiene. Through information sharing and active collaboration with the WHO, our main goal will be to gather the necessary tools and information to improve hand hygiene awareness in healthcare and therefore to always continue striving to save lives. As the only Asian member of the platform, we look to play an active role in raising hand hygiene awareness throughout Japan and the rest of Asia.

We would like to thank the WHO for their trust and support. We will continue to support the message Clean Care is Safer Care program in worldwide hospitals.
