Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC)

Infectious diseases prevention & control will helpful to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. STI control efforts have been increased in relation to the HIV programme priorities that are funded, implemented and evaluated independently for other STI control efforts. STI control is the public health outcome, measured as reduced incidence and prevalence, achieved by implementing strategies composed of the multiple synergistic interventions.
Abnormal development of fetus resulting in the  death, malformation, growth retardation, and functional disorders is defined as the birth defects. Nearly 150,000 babies are born annually with birth defects. Birth defects, including low birth weight babies, are the most leading cause of infant mortality. Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted diseases, affects an estimated 100,000 pregnant women every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, it is  one of the serious causes of infections affecting newborns' eyes and respiratory system.
Exposure to the bacteria during childbirth could lead to infection of the respiratory tract, causing infant pneumonia. While some types of birth defects have declined , mostly by preventive methods, many have increased. According to the CDC study of 38 types of birth defects occurring over the period 1979-89, 27 had increased, including several cardiac defects, chromosomal defects like  trisomy 18, and fetal alcohol syndrome; 9 had remained the same , and only 2 had decreased. Prompt evaluation of the sexual partners is mandatory to prevent reinfection and disrupt transmission of many STDs. Preexposure vaccination is among the most effective methods for preventing some STDs.
