CDA Elizabeth Rood’s Remarks to Media at the National Infection Prevention and Control Stakeholder’s Meeting (July 27)
Q-n about the importance of the program and the involvement of the U.S. Embassy
CDA Rood: The United States Embassy, through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is assisting the Government of Georgia to implement best practices in infection prevention and control throughout Georgia’s healthcare settings. United States applauds the Government of Georgia for the tremendous progress it has made over the years to create a healthcare system that meets the needs of the Georgian people and keeps the population healthy; infection prevention and control in hospitals, clinics, and other settings is a very key part of that. So we encourage Georgia to make progress in that area. Today’s conference is bringing together healthcare professionals from the United States, from the World Health Organization, and from the Ministry of Health and hospitals throughout Georgia to work together on this very important topic.
