dc.description.abstract As with other areas of the public sector in Mongolia, the healthcare system has undergone significant structural and policy reforms since the early 1990s. The previous infection control system, characterised as a sanitary-epidemiological network, was dismantled with no replacement. A new infection control management system was established in 1997 with the adoption of infection control policies and guidelines, establishment of hospital infection control programmes in all major hospitals, training of health professionals and the commencement of passive surveillance of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Recent health statistics claim that HAIs occur in 0.01-0.02% of all hospital admissions with the highest percentage (0.05%) in tertiary hospitals in the capital city Ulaanbaatar, but this is very likely to be an underestimate. In 2002 the Government approved a national programme to establish a sentinel surveillance system for HAIs with improved laboratory-based monitoring. However, implementation has been delayed due to insufficient support from stakeholders and a shortage of resources and trained infection control professionals. Non-governmental infection control initiatives are limited by time and coverage.
