In this context, the MOH National Sterilization Program has been implementing a plan for five years, to develop sterilization sections in hospitals, and equip them according to the latest international standards; due to the importance of the central sterilization sections and its vital role in the infection control process. Hence, about 90 hospitals have been developed at the same level, while there is a current plan to develop disinfection units at diagnostic endoscopy sections.
