Clean care for all – it’s in your hands

WHO calls on everyone to be inspired by the global movement to achieve universal health coverage (UHC), i.e. achieving better health and well-being for all people at all ages, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all. Infection Prevention and Control, including hand hygiene, is critical to achieve UHC as it is a practical and evidence-based approach with demonstrated impact on quality of care and patient safety across all levels of the health system.

IPC, including hand hygiene, is critical to achieve UHC as it is a

✓ practical and evidence-based approach
✓ with demonstrated impact on quality of care and patient safety

5 May 2019 – Calls to action

  1. Health workers
    ”Champion clean care – it’s in your hands”
  2. IPC leaders
    “Monitor infection prevention and control standards – take action and improve practices”
  3. Health facility leaders
    “Is your facility up to WHO infection control and hand hygiene standards?” “Take part in the WHO survey 2019 and take action!”
  4. Ministry of Health (MoH)
    “Does your country meet infection prevention and control standards? Monitor and act to achieve quality universal health coverage”
  5. Patient advocacy groups

What is Infection Prevention and Control (IPC)?

A practical and proven set of organisational and technical approaches and measures to prevent the spread of avoidable infections and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) within both community and health care settings. IPC MEANS CLEAN CARE FOR ALL

IPC PLAYS A CRITICAL ROLE IN MEETING YOUR NATIONAL HEALTH PRIORITIES

Quality UHC
IPC is an essential component for quality of health care delivery and patient safety across all levels of the health system.
Reducing AMR
IPC prevents both the spread of antibiotic resistant organisms and the occurrence of infection and thus, the need for antibiotic use.
Health security
Strong IPC capacity and programmes ensure adequate preparedness and response to outbreaks.
Maternal and neonatal health
Prevention of infection and sepsis reduces morbidity and mortality in these vulnerable populations.

5 REASONS TO INVEST IN IPC

  • Directly improves health outcomes
  • Reduces health care costs and out-of-pocket expenses
  • Monitors and tracks quality
  • Consists of proven strategies supported by implementation aids
  • Is scalable and adaptable to your local context
