Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are some of the major
threats to life on the planet. Current concerns on outbreaks of resistant
organisms are also driven by multiple factors of globalisation. The quest
for livelihoods and trade, as well as regional conflicts and endemic poverty,
has seen an alarming volume and speed of human and animal population
movement. This can also be observed in the significant increase of the flow
of organic materials within and across national and continental borders that
is exponentially enabled by technological advances.
The Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Fellowship offers an educational
journey into a well-recognised career path for the health care worker on
various levels. Patients, healthcare personnel as well as visitors’ safety at
home-based and healthcare facility levels are studied in a structured,
outcome-based and practical educational environment.
