Brazil bolsters HAI (hospital-acquired infection) monitoring:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Brazil's healthcare surveillance agency, Anvisa, has launched a national information system to help co-ordinate hospital-acquired infection (HAI) control measures. SINAIS will be installed across the national health service, replacing the individual systems that until now have provided only patchy information on outbreaks and control measures. The launch of SINAIS was part of an event organised on national hospital infection control day (May 15 2003), to raise awareness of the problem. It was attended, among others, by health minister Humberto Costa, the deputy director-general of technology in healthcare, Flavia Freitas de Paula, and Anvisa's director-president, Claudio Maierovitch.
