6Today, the entire globe has been reduced to a simple roadmap Today, the entire globe has been reduced to a simple roadmap. This is good for the global economy but it is also a boost for the global transmission of infectious pathogens. One only has to look at the recent epidemics in various global areas of SARS, influenza, avian flu, foot and mouth disease and illnesses that have caused popular cruise lines to turn back to port, to grasp how fast and thoroughly any disease has the potential to wreak havoc.Aside from imported diseases, there are plenty to deal with. The medical institution recognizes the fact that many are evolving into very antibiotic resistant strains, making them harder to cure. Poor disinfection and hygiene practices were cited as the main cause of all the infections.“The emphasis must first be on prevention of the spread of infectious diseases and then on the cure.”Ali M. Javadian, PhD, MPH, manager of technology development at Wyeth Vaccines Research in Pearl River, N.Y.
7Disinfection Why is disinfection important? Fundamental in reducing pathogens load in theenvironment to decrease the risk of diseases.Disinfection in :Healthcare Industry- control/reduce pathogens to safe level to prevent Hospital-acquired infection (HAI)Child Care Industry - provide hygienic environment for healthy childrenFood Related Industries - kill microbes that cause food-borne illnessesPoultry & Livestock Industry - break the cycle of diseases and control over new infectionsPet’s Hygiene - healthy pet and healthy homeWater Purification - kill pathogenic organisms including those causing cholera, polio, typhoid etc“disinfectants play a serious role in the reduction of disease transmission, directly through biocidal activity……”Stuart Reid, professor of comparative epidemiology and informatics at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde in Glasgow, U.K.
