IHHN’S INFECTION CONTROL DEPARTMENT IN COLLABORATION WITH WHO TRAINS DOCTORS FROM SINDH AND BALOCHISTAN

This is dependent mainly upon the availability of IPC trainings and education which are much-needed but generally neglected.

The certificate course was conducted at The Indus Hospital, Korangi Campus from March 1-6, 2021, following last year’s successful training in November. 17 physicians attended the training, which was led by Arifa Khatoon, Manager IPC, IHHN.
