3M Infection Prevention Activities
3M Infection Prevention is embarking on active contribution to the society in terms of creating awareness and implementation of infection prevention practices.
Accordingly, 3M Infection Prevention in Egypt has initiated its contribution in that regards with two activities. On a Global level, 3M Health Care is a strategic partner with APIC (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology). Once the APIC had launched on the 21st October 2010 its Local Chapter in Egypt for the International Infection Prevention Week, hosted by the ESIC (Egyptian Society for Infection Control), 3M Healthcare locally became the only sponsor for this event. Secondly, 3M Healthcare participated in the 19th Annual Conference of the Egyptian Society for Infection Control (29th October – 1st November 2010) through a distributor booth (Egyptian Group Co.) during which the distributor team promoted 3M Sterilization Assurance range. In addition 3M sales and technical service team conducted demonstration in the booth area and responded to participants inquiries.
Those two activities are just the initial step to a cooperation framework that is currently under development between 3M Health Care and the Egyptian Society For Infection Control to create infection prevention practices awareness and compliance in Egypt.
