Special webinar series on the WHO Global Strategy on Infection Prevention and Control (IPC)

Deep dive into the WHO Strategic Directions for IPC: Political Commitment and Policies and Active IPC Programmes

The Global Strategy on Infection Prevention and Control (GSIPC) represents a turning point in the history of IPC with a clear vision and objectives to protect those accessing and providing care from associated infections by 2030. It also provides Member States with eight strategic directions (SD) to achieve measurable improvements and to substantially reduce the ongoing risk of healthcare-associated infections including those prone to epidemics and pandemics and those exhibiting antimicrobial resistance.

The WHO IPC Hub Unit at WHO headquarters is organizing a special series of webinars to discuss the GSIPC key elements and implementation. In the first session of this four-part series, a panel of IPC specialists from global, national and facility levels will discuss how Strategic Directions “Political commitment and policies” (SD1) and “Active IPC programmes” (SD2) have impacted and will further impact their work, staff and the communities they serve, as well as the challenges and opportunities to be gained.

• To provide a brief overview of the GSIPC
• To understand GSIPC SD 1- “Political commitment and policies” and SD 2- “Active IPC programmes”
• To share views and experiences of IPC panellists to address political commitment and policies supporting IPC and achieve active IPC programmes


The webinar will be held in English, with simultaneous interpretation available in: Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish and Russian
