Fight Antibiotic Resistence: It's in your hands

Friday May 5, 2017

8:30 a.m. - Washington, DC | 2:30 p.m. Geneva

Change is in your hands. Join us this Friday for a free teleclass organized by the World Health Organization 

Objectives:
  • Review the fact that effective influence and leadership in infection prevention and control (IPC) saves lives.
  • Stress on the opportunity of the 2017 WHO SaveLives:CleanYourHands campaign to strengthen IPC messages informing actions in support of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) national action plans, which every country is due to have in place by 2017.
  • Engage IPC leaders to implement WHO guidelines on core components of IPC programs, including hand hygiene, to combat antibiotic resistance.
  • Enlarge the community of key-opinion leaders and professionals pledging for enhanced actions toward better hand hygiene and reduction of healthcare-associated infections and AMR spread and in particular health workers, policy-makers, and chief executive officers and administrators.

Speakers: Prof Didier Pittet, WHO Collaborating Centre on Patient Safety, Geneva and Prof. Benedetta Allegranzi, WHO, Geneva

This teleclass is presented as part of the May 5 Hand Hygiene Day campaign.
