Infection Prevention and Control (Kenya)September 12, 2017 - June 30, 2019
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 a new program, Infection Prevention and Control, in Kenya. The program is part of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) public-private partnership with BD, the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 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 for averting HIV, hepatitis and other blood-borne pathogen transmission.
