Zutron Partners 37 Military Hospital To Celebrate Wash-Ipc Week

Tthe annual International Infection Prevention Week was marked under the auspices of the 37 Military Hospital through its Public Health Department. International Infection Prevention Week is celebrated globally to emphasize the importance of infection prevention and control in healthcare facilities and our day-to-day activities.

 This year’s theme for the celebration is The Future is Infection Prevention: 50 Years of Infection Prevention. Zutron Pharmaceuticals Ltd., again, was the headline sponsor for this year’s celebration, just as we did for the maiden event. We supported the printing of Polo shirts used throughout the week.

The week celebration started with the launch of the week-long programme by the Commanding Officer (CO) of 37 Military Hospital, Col. Seth Attoh.

He explained that infection Prevention and Control was not an area of interest to only the few trained specialists, but rather it was the role of all stakeholders in the health sector.

Also present on the day was the Deputy Director, Quality Assurance at the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Mary Ashinyo; she emphasized that the GHS was ready to partner with the Ghana Armed Forces to build the capacity of health workers of the hospital.

On our part as a sponsor of the week-long celebration, Zutron Pharmaceutical’s brand was heavily represented through the Polo Shirts used for the celebration. We used the opportunity to speak to them about the great benefits of our products, zeroing it down to colon infection and how it can be prevented by taking AyuLax to cleanse the colon and aid in digestion.

In addition, the programme offered us the opportunity to engage over hundred (100) participants, which were mainly health professionals, about some products, especially the Welex brands (AyuVigo, AyuRhoids and AyuLax). Samples of the products were also distributed to the programme attendees, who were pleased to have received the products. A few sales were achieved, and others with specific cases of piles and constipation proposed to reach out after using the samples to get their sales packs.

The week climaxed with an award ceremony to reward Medical Wards in the 37 Military hospitals who strictly adhere to Infection Prevention Rules like Hand Washing, Sanitizing hands, regularly wearing a Nose and Face Mask etc.

The Zutron marketing team also shared the samples and flyers to the participants to experience the products first-hand.
