Infectious Diseases


The Infectious Diseases Unit was established at the end of 1976 as part of the Medicine Department, and has been an independent medical department since 1991.

Its main goals are: to provide quality care to patients with complex community and nosocomial infections; to provide specialist support to the other departments; to help control hospital infection and the rational use of antibiotics; to provide degree and post-graduate education, and to conduct research projects on infectious diseases.
