In December 2014, to strengthen hospital infection control while caring for patients with Nipah virus encephalitis and other infectious diseases, Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) Bangladeshi resident, Dr. Mallick Masum Billah, was photographed here as he was in the process of training nurses at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital in Rajshahi, Bangladesh, on hospital infection control standards and transmission precautions.
Additional Information:
”Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are a threat to patient safety. CDC provides national leadership in surveillance, outbreak investigations, laboratory research, and prevention of healthcare-associated infections. CDC uses knowledge gained through these activities to detect infections and develop new strategies to prevent healthcare-associated infections. Public health action by CDC and other healthcare partners has led to improvements in clinical practice, medical procedures, and the ongoing development of evidence-based infection control guidance and prevention successes.”
