In partnership with Mercy Ships, SPECT trained 22 workers from 4 healthcare facilities in Conakry. 15 participants attended our ToT workshop and have gone on to train more than 35 workers on effective sterile processing practices.

"The sterilization process is very important. It is the backbone of safe surgery because the first patient may have a sickness or disease like HIV or hepatitis, so whenever you treat them with surgery and use the same instrument on another patient without the same pathology you can transmit infection through improperly sterilized instruments. Instead of reducing infection, it can be spread further". — Dr. Fode Lansana Camara
