Exposure to different airborne pathogens has resulted in the emergence of epidemics/pandemics of respiratory infections. This airborne transmission becomes even more prevalent in healthcare settings because of overburdened health facilities and the presence of immunosuppressed patients. Airborne infection control measures include a three-pronged approach, namely administrative control, environmental control, and personal respiratory protection measures.
Recently the WHO also identified various challenges and weaknesses with respect to infection prevention control practices on airborne infections in South Africa with a general lack of insight into the basic principles.
FPD with CSIR developed a basic airborne infection control course addressing the challenges of airborne infection.
