By Benjamin Flowers: Belize’s Ministry of Health and Wellness joins with health organizations all over the world this week in the observation of International Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Week.
The week runs from October 17-21 and is being held under the theme “Spread Prevention – not infection!” which was coined in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The MOHW said that it is rolling out a number of events in celebration of IPC Week, including talk show appearances, an IPC fair at the Belmopan Civic Center on October 18, 2022, school visits and activities at the district level, and active engagement of staff at public facilities across the country.
“Infection Prevention and Control Week is an opportunity to celebrate the valuable work of those engaged in infection prevention and control (IPC). Infection perfectionists are professionals such as doctors, nurses and epidemiologists who ensure practices are upheld among healthcare workers and patients to prevent infections,” the MOHW said.
The Ministry also noted that the IPC program in Belize has been largely successful in its mission, as well as in empowering medical staff across the country with valuable knowledge and skills. The program has been so successful that Belize has been recognized for this program and was invited to participate at a Caribbean forum this year to make a presentation on those successes.
“The ministry extends its appreciation to PAHO/WHO for the work and support they continue to provide through IPC best practices. The public is encouraged to practice standard precaution measures (hand hygiene, cough etiquette, social distancing and environmental sanitation) as they interact with others, especially persons who are hospitalized,” the MOHW added.
