Practical Manual for Implementation of the National Infection Prevention and Control Strategic Framework - 2020
The National IPC Strategic Framework (2019) was aligned with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) core components for IPC (2016). The strategic framework gives guidance to public and private health facilities and health workers on compliance with standards relating to IPC practises. To further assist health facilities to implement the IPC strategic framework, this practical implementation manual has been developed in parallel to accompany the document. It supports the Framework for the Prevention and Containment of AMR in South African Hospitals (2018).
