MoH launches Nat’l Infection Prevention & Control Strategy

The Ministry of Health (MoH), in partnership with its agencies, has initiated the National Infection Prevention and Control Strategy in Accra. The strategy, slated for implementation from 2024 to 2028, aims to prevent, minimize, and manage Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) to enhance patient safety and health outcomes.

The strategy also aims to establish a comprehensive integrated Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) program, develop national IPC guidelines, enhance education and training in IPC, establish a system for monitoring HAI and AMR, and evaluate IPC practices with feedback.

During his address, Minister for Health Kwaku Agyeman-Manu emphasized the importance of preventing infections in healthcare facilities to safeguard patient and health worker well-being, ensure quality care, uphold health security, and combat HAIs and AMR.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
