Project Summary

Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are global problems that are affecting hundreds of millions of patients and resulting in significant health and economic costs. HAIs are a major challenge to the effective and efficient delivery of healthcare services in all economies, but place developing economies, which have an urgent need to support rapidly developing healthcare systems, at particular risk. Understanding the economic and health impact of HAIs is limited as data on HAIs are at best incomplete in developed economies and almost non-existent in developing economies. In addition, best practices in infection prevention and control are rarely used. It is estimated that as many as 20 percent of patients admitted for treatment in developing economies are affected by an HAI.

The activity will be a capacity building workshop which aims to improve APEC economies’ capacities and knowledge of HAI surveillance practices. The workshop will be held in Hanoi, Viet Nam, in December 2016.
