Held by the Sharjah Training and Development Centre, the key thematic areas of the course are the pathogenic microorganisms and the chain of infection, factors leading to the risk of infectious diseases, control, hygiene and health measures, personal hygiene, safe waste treatment, environmental pollution, and health legislation. It also includes the responsibilities of employers and employees towards preventing infectious diseases, said Wam.
