Architectural and Engineering Approaches to Infection Control
In South Africa there is a lack of specialised training available on undergraduate, postgraduate and for continuing professional development for healthcare-related topics in the built-environment curricula. This results in low awareness levels and poor technical competence in addressing various issues such as airborne infection risks. The CSIR, in association with the University of Pretoria, presents Building Design and Engineering Approaches to Airborne Infection Control. The event is being funded by the CDC and is based on a prestigious Harvard School of Public Health course of the same name. It will bring together a body of local and international technical expertise common to the control of human airborne infections with particular reference to resource-constrained settings.
