With the help of GE Foundation, which has a history of supporting preventitive health programs, the levels of disease and infection have dramatically decreased in the Kabuyanda Health Center of Uganda. The Standards-Based Management and Recognition (SBM-R) system was effective in assisting the development of safer health practices and a safer environment. In only two years, the hospital’s operating room infection rate decreased from 30–40% to almost 0%. All of the processes have been assessed and improved to ensure the highest level of medical sanitation.
