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.

This course has been developed in partnership with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
