Injection Safety

  • Main component of national EPI plans
    • Routine immunization activities.
    • Supplementary immunization activities.
  • Basic principles include:
    • Equipment:
      • Use of disposable / AD syringes.
      • Proper collection of used syringes; “Safety Boxes”
      • Proper disposal of used syringes; “Burning / incineration”
    • Manpower:
      • Training of health workers.
slide14

Injection Safety

Planned activities

  • Development of a regional toolbox including a curriculum and IEC material for training of health workers on injection safety.
  • Training of trainers in all Member States.
  • Training of peripheral health workers in all Member States.
slide15

Injection Safety

Planned activities

  • Countries planning to conduct mass campaigns will conduct a survey of the safety of injection and prepare a special plan for insuring safety of injection.
  • Campaign evaluation should include a quantified assessment of injection safety.
slide16

Injection Safety

Planned activities

  • Revised national plans on safety of routine and supplementary immunizations will be developed based on injection safety surveys.
  • All countries will document satisfactory injection safety in routine and supplementary immunization services.
