Supporting Sterile Processing During COVID-19

Reducing the risk
of surgical infection.

SPECT educates health care workers on sterile processing practices to ensure every instrument placed in the hands of a surgeon is safe.

Our Mission

The Problem

Surgical site infection is the most common healthcare-associated infection in low- and middle-income countries, with an incidence rate of 5.6 per 100 surgical procedures, at least twice the rate found in high-income countries.

Our Approach

Through training, mentorship and advocacy, SPECT supports health care workers to reduce the risk of surgical infection and keep patients safe.
