Hygiene Measures

“Educate, Vaccinate, Evaluate”

“Infections can be transmitted by person to person contact, by common source exposure or by vector-borne transmission.

The primary focus of attention should be on primary prevention by use of hygiene measures, use of immunisation (vaccinations) and use of interventions to prevent secondary spread of infection. Secondary prevention measures include prevention of recurrence and prevention of onward spread of infection from a source patient. Education of players in key aspects of infection is a key element of prevention.”
