Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD): Infection Prevention and Control (Kenya)

September 12, 2017 - June 30, 2019

Overview

The William Davidson Institute is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary organization. As a result, WDI often engages multiple sector and services teams in our work. The following project undertaken by both our Healthcare sector and Performance Measurement and Improvement service demonstrates our holistic approach.

WDI is working with global medical device company, Becton, Dickinson & Company (BD), to assess the impact of the new program, Infection Prevention and Control, in Kenya. The goal of the program is to strengthen health worker and patient safety through appropriate safe intravenous infusion therapy practices, leveraging BD’s longstanding knowledge and safety-engineered technology designed to reduce the rate of needle-stick injuries in healthcare workers, thus contributing to the prevention of injection-transmitted infections such as HIV and other blood-borne pathogen transmission.
