With funding from Grand Challenges Canada, SPECT provided sterile processing training to 97 health care workers from 40 facilities in Antsirabe and Antananarivo. In addition, SPECT distributed 30 pressure cooker sterilization systems.
In partnership with Mercy Ships, SPECT provided further training to 3 health care workers at one facility in Tamatave and consulted on the rebuilding of the hospital's sterilization department.
Global News Calgary featured a video of SPECT's mission in Madagascar, found here.
The training has been helpful because we know how to decrease infection in the hospital and because of this the patient’s stay is shorter. – Stanislas, Training Participant
