Products - Fighting HAI: A Unique Global Solution

<< Back

Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) continue to be a major cause of morbidity, mortality and excess healthcare cost.


Hospitals, critical care facilities, surgical centers, long-term care institutions, ambulatory care - whatever the healthcare setting - HAI is now recognized worldwide as a major public health issue.

The implementation of infection control programs, including dedicated committees, patient screening, reinforced hygiene measures, nursing protocols and antibiotic stewardship, has already been shown to be effective in reducing the number of healthcare-associated infections.

Nevertheless, current facts and figures reflect the essence of the challenge ahead: despite all the efforts made, HAI will remain a permanent threat and a major concern for all healthcare providers.
