How BASICS Will Adapt to Respond to Unique Cultural Barriers

This post is part of a series authored by the BASICS (Bold Action to Stop Infections in Clinical Settings) team. BASICS is a new initiative that will transform healthcare and reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) by at least 50%.

BASICS (Bold Action to Stop Infections in Clinical Settings) will launch in four countries where governments have shown commitment to reducing infection risk. Yet, local cultural, economic and social barriers can pose unique challenges. We have received a number of questions on how we see BASICS adapt and flex to meet unique cultural contexts.


In this video, our staff on the ground share their perspective and experience on how they worked with behavior change interventions to achieve significant promising results in their countries.
