World Health Organization collaborates with TIH’s Infection Control Department

The Indus Hospital’s Infection Control Department is always seeking opportunities to facilitate healthcare workers, patients, and their families to educate them.

The increasing challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) has emerged as a major health crisis for the entire world including Pakistan. Pakistan has developed National Action Plans (NAPs) on AMR, in which infection prevention and control (IPC) is one of the priorities.

Since 2019, World Health Organization (WHO) has worked with the Sindh Health Department to systematically implement IPC in wake of HIV/AIDS outbreak in Larkana. In 2019, WHO’s regional office, WHO CCKSA (WHO Collaborating Centers), conducted a seven-day course to develop IPC master trainers for infection prevention and control implementation.

In continuation of this, WHO is now working with The Indus Hospital to “institutionalize one-week IPC master course for the master trainer of IPC”.

The course would be rolled out as a certificate course for selected health care workers in health facilities in Sindh by closely working with the IPC unit under the Sindh Health Department.

The course will be held from November 23rd to 30th, 2020 at The Indus Hospital where various international and national IPC experts will speak. Courses will consist of theory, hands-on training, and field visits.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
