The emergence of life-threatening infections such as airborne infections and re-emerging infectious diseases like hospital-borne infections have highlighted the need for efficient infection control programmes in all health care settings. It is also needed to have capacity building courses for health care workers so they can implement infection controls. An infection control programme puts together various practices which, when used appropriately, restrict the spread of infection. A breach in infection control practices facilitates transmission of infection from patients to health care workers, other patients and attendants. It is also imperative for health care administrators to ensure implementation of the infection control programme in health care facilities.
