POST 00557E : CONTAMINATION STUDY OF NEEDLE REMOVERS Follow-up on Post 00509E, 00510E, 00512E and 00514E 3 April 2003 ____________________________________________________ Janet Vail (mailto:[log in to unmask]) and Debra Kristensen (mailto:[log in to unmask]) inform us that the report of the "Comparative Study Evaluating the Surface Contamination of the Test Article (PATH Needle Puller, WHO Safety Box, Needle Removal Using a Plier)" is available. You can access the document directly at http://www.technet21.org/Namsareport2002.pdf or by visiting the Technet21 website (PATH Documents sub-page). Please note however that this document is rather large at over 3 Megabytes. Another document has also been made available on the Technet21 website under PATH Documents, "Assessment of Needle Destroyers for Improved Sharps Disposal: A Survey of Needle Destroyer Manufacturers, July 2000". It is available at : http://www.technet21.org/needledestroyers2000.pdf The Technet website has been modified. A top logo/banner has been introduced, compliments of the group "Shop of Miracles" from Turkey who designed it. Our sincere thanks to them. The pictures and story for the "Best Practice" corner, and the travel quiz have also been changed. Finally, another organization has submitted reference documents. Abt Associates/Partnerships for Health Reform has now a sub-page accessible through the "Reference Documents" page. Those who are interested in economic aspects of immunization programs will certainly welcome this addition. _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ _____________ Visit the TECHNET21 Website at http://www.technet21.org You will find instructions to subscribe, a direct access to archives, links to reference documents and other features. ______________________________________________________________________________ To UNSUBSCRIBE, send a message to : mailto:[log in to unmask] Leave the subject area BLANK In the message body, write unsubscribe TECHNET21E ______________________________________________________________________________ The World Health Organization and UNICEF support TechNet21.
