The SIGN alliance
Unsafe injection practices are increasingly recognized as a major source of infection with bloodborne pathogens. While it is the responsibility of all health care workers, their employers, the public, and national governments to ensure safe and appropriate use of injections, the prevention of bloodborne pathogen transmission and other adverse events associated with injections will require improved collaboration between organizations and individuals sharing a common interest in attaining this goal.
To achieve this collaboration, the "Safe Injection Global Network" (SIGN) has been established. SIGN is a voluntary coalition of stakeholders aiming to achieve safe and appropriate use of injections throughout the world. For more information, please read the terms of reference of the network.
