The URGENT need to reduce Healthcare-Associated Infections (HCAIs) cases.

There is the great urgency to reduce HCAIs in healthcare by guaranteeing the highest possible level of hygiene and patient safety.
According to a study carried out by the WHO (World Health Organisation) each year in Europe approx. 50.000 people die due to HCAIs and 100.000 people in the US.
In addition in Europe the treatment to heal HCAIs patients results in approximately 10 million additional patient days resulting to an estimated 13 – 25 billion Euros extra costs.
HEXIS Health PVC Films with their unique capacity to inhibit growth of a wide range of microbes are a very effective part in the defence against the spread of bacteria and complement the strategy to fight HCAIs according to best practices defined by national, european and international institutions (e.g. Health First Europe, European Commission, WHO).
