In Ethiopia, infection prevention to protect patients, healthcare workers, and visitors from healthcare-acquired infections is one of a number of nationwide transformational initiatives to ensure the provision of quality healthcare services. The aim of this research was to assess the practice of healthcare workers regarding infection prevention and its associated factors in Bale. Formulating effective control strategies are needed that includes surveillance to identify infected animals, prevention of transmission to non infected animals and removal of the reservoir to eliminate the source of infection. In addition, vaccination of susceptible animals is also important in areas where high prevalence of brucellosis exists equipment were independent predictors of good infection prevention practices. Optimizing the infection prevention and control loop of the health facilities is recommended. Keywords: Knowledge, Practice, COVID-19, Health care workers, Ethiopia About the journal.

Communicable Diseases and Infection Control School nurses can assist schools and school districts with infectious disease prevention policies, programs and training. Infectious disease prevention and surveillance is an important part of the school nurse's job because of the increasing incidence of drug analysis in Ethiopia showed that the prevalence of schis-tosomiasis is high despite continued prevention and con-trol efforts [12]. Although the knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) of the community could have a signifi-cant role in the success of any control strategies, such studies towards schistosomiasis are limited in the coun-try Scabies Prevention and Control Guidelines for Healthcare Settings (Revised July 2019) I.

She also has consulted with practitioners in numerous hospitals with limited resources in the US and developing countries. 1 Tietjen L, W Cronin and N McIntosh. 1992.Infection Prevention for Family Planning Service Programs: A Problem Effective infection prevention and control practices must be implemented at the global, national, and individual levels to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, which necessitates sufficient knowledge of the etiology, transmission, and various community responses to the pandemic, as well as a positive mindset, to correctly implement the prevention. Ethiopia as one of the sub-Saharan country it is highly endemic to malaria. It was noted that early detection and prompt treatment of malaria cases, selective vector control and epidemic prevention and control are the major strategies for malaria prevention and control; So far, a lot have been done and remarkable improvements were seen However, the practice was relatively low. Gender, educational status, profession, year of service, knowledge towards COVID-19, and availability of personal protective equipment were independent predictors of good infection prevention practices. Optimizing the infection prevention and control loop of the health facilities is recommended

A meta-analysis of studies in Ethiopia showed only half of healthcare workers practiced safe infection prevention practices.9 Though it varies by geographic region and from clinic to clinic, 15.3%-46.3% of healthcare workers in Ethiopia were not knowledgeable about infection prevention practices.10-12 Lack of knowledge among healthcare. Ethiopia is one of the African countries where Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax co-exist. Monitoring and evaluation of current malaria transmission status is an important component of malaria control as it is a measure of the success of ongoing interventions and guides the planning of future control and elimination efforts. We evaluated changes in malaria control policy in Ethiopia, and. Deoine Reed, PhD and Sandra A.
