Andhra Pradesh leads the way to Clinical Hygiene!

  • Infections caused due to used syringes is an unfortunate clinical reality.
  • Every year numerous people get infected from injections given to them by clinics using used syringes.
  • Despite repeated warnings and actions taken by the government against unlawful clinical practioners this menace still lingers in our society.
  • But Andhra Pradesh has taken the lead in opting a way out of this problem completely.
  • From World Hepatitis Day on July 28th 2018, Andhra Pradesh under the leadership of Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu will move to use "auto-disable syringes" for all clinical purposes.
  • It must be noted that Andhra Pradesh will be the first state in the country to make this move worth a warm applause.
  • Auto-disable syringes were already introduced in India in the past during the mass immunisation campaign. 
  • But astonishingly Andhra Pradesh was the first state to introduce this even before the Central Government decided to make it mandatory for all immunisation injections which clearly shows the level of awareness that Andhra Pradesh has when it comes to the critical issues of Public Health & Hygiene.
  • Its time that the Central Government makes the use of auto-disable syringes mandatory nation-wide, not just for immunisation injections but for complete clinical therapeutic use.
Meanwhile: Great going Andhra Pradesh, keep it up !
