Injection Safety Policy launch and SIGN meeting postponed to early 2015

Dear All,

Our policy launch was scheduled to take place 17-18 December 2014 but we
have made an important decision to postpone it to early 2015.

WHO has devoted significant capacity to the Ebola outbreak, including the
deployment of many infection, prevention and control specialists to
perform training and give support to the front line responders in affected
countries. Many partners and stakeholders have done the same.

A brief delay in the launch will give this important event the full
attention it deserves and make sure that our key partners and participants
will be available to participate.

An official communication from Dr Marie-Paule KIENY, ADG /HIS will follow
shortly with the new dates.

Thank you very much for your understanding.

Best regards
